Submission Canada to Ban Incandescent Bulbs by 2012

Radon360 writes: Canada will ban the sale of inefficient incandescent light bulbs by 2012 as part of a plan to cut down on emissions of greenhouse gases. Canada is the second country in the world to announce such a ban. Australia said in February it would get rid of all incandescent bulbs by 2009. The ban will not apply to uses where incandescent bulbs are still the only practical alternative.

The program isn't debugged until the last user is dead.
