Apple Approved for iBookstore in Canada

The news comes per this self important statement from The Honourable James Moore, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages, who "today announced that Apple Canada has been granted approval under the Investment Canada Act to establish iBookstore Canada. 'Our Government is committed to strengthening Canada's economy through all its sectors, especially arts and culture,' said Minister Moore. 'Apple has demonstrated how iBookstore Canada represents new opportunities for Canadian authors and publishers, and I have determined that this investment will be of net benefit to Canada.'" The Honourable Mr. Moore has evidently been pondering this complex question since July, when Apple made its initial application. Good work if you can get it.
