Tobacco Regulation - Canada next?

 That link to news about FDA regulating tobacco in the USA.

  Now that the USA is set to regulate tobacco - such as how much extra nicotine can be added to cigarettes to make them more addictive - will Canada finally feel free to do the same?

  It is getting more and more obvious that Canada is not able to set our own agenda without approval from America. Another famous example is that Canada might have decriminalised marijuana in 1999 except for the objections from America.

  It probably has a lot to do with the corporate overlap, where most Canadian companies are dependant on American markets, and the shared ownership of our biggest corporations.

  The one area where Canada deviated from American ways is with our banking regulations - and it turned out to be a pretty good thing!
