Canada Has a Problem with Luggage Stickers Depicting Cocaine, Kidnapped Stewardesses

Sex Toy Stickers Are Not Welcome, Either

Canada has a problem with luggage stickers depicting:

  • bricks of cocaine
  • kidnapped flight attendants
  • sex toys
  • wads of presumably illicit cash

The Ministry of Transport spat the dummy when it found out about the somewhat-provocative luggage stickers, and promptly banned them.

Canada needs to lighten up, but, until the land of moose, maple syrup and Japandroids does so, will no longer ship its eyebrow-raising luggage stickers to Canada.

Come on. I mean, I think most airport security staff are idiots, too, but am willing to concede that they can tell the difference between an actual kidnapped stewardess and a sticker depicting a kidnapped stewardess.

‘The full force of the law’ is too strong a statement to risk and we hope that at some point the Government will look around the world at some other reactions and re-consider their position. Stops Sales of Suitcase Stickers In Canada

Below is the bales-of-coke sticker. Or is it a sticker of a photo of a sticker depicting cocaine? Canada can’t tell the difference, apparently.
