Not such a bright idea?
I thought that the lighting industry would be in favor of a ban on incandescent light bulbs in Canada with all of the subsequent extra profit. I was wrong.
According to documents from a government summit last year,
In one document, government consultants said they assume price and supply will not be affected, but a government notation in the margin says “manufacturers are telling us that with the global push to go to CFLs (compact fluorescent lights), there would be a shortage of material and final products so prices may go up. Hard to say to what extent though.”
So, we might be unable to get any lightbulbs — the good ones because they are banned and the yucky ones because of a shortage. Excellent. Partylight anyone?
