Canada Government justification of Bulb Ban Delay

A further update about the Canada putting off the ban on simple incandescents:

The stated reason by the Canadian government for the delay was

"Delaying the date for compliance with Canada’s efficiency standards for general service lighting for 100/75/60/40W light bulbs (general service lamps) is required in order to strengthen communication activities, to allow for technological innovations and to consider the concerns expressed about the availability of compliant technologies and perceived health and mercury issues, including safe disposal for compact fluorescent lamps"
