Warning: Canada needs exotic dancers.

A couple of days ago I mentioned the 25 year old Romanian stripper who was given permission to stay in Canada. According to today’s Globe and Mail newspaper, Canada’s “stripper visa program” was introduced to rectify a shortage of exotic dancers, granting more than 550 temporary visas to Romanians last year.

A spokesman for Human Resources Minister Joe Volpe indicated the program would be scaled back, stating “I can guarantee you it will change this time.”

This kind of thing probably wouldn’t have happened if the NHL wasn’t on strike.
