Lindsay Lohan

Approved to Work in Canada, Eh

3/29/2012 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bacon ... hockey ... maple syrup ... Lindsay Lohan -- all things that've received the official Canadian stamp of approval ... TMZ has learned.

Lindsay has just been granted a Canadian work permit to film an upcoming Liz Taylor movie in Toronto ... which is a big deal because the Canucks usually aren't too fond of granting permits to foreigners with criminal records.

Sources tell us ... Canadian officials have realized Lindsay has been receiving positive marks from the court and her probation officer ... and signed off on the permit hours after she completed her community service requirements yesterday.

Bryan Adams could not be reached for comment.

Well this is good news. I honestly though she wasnt going to be able to get in Canada they are usually very strict and I though that even though Linds has been doing great these past few months it wouldnt be enough.

Now that she will be on set and working this could be what she needs to stay on the right track and out of trouble. She is going to be doing Glee too so hopefully this will be the last time she is in criminal court.

Jill:you guys need to make up your mind on whether she's broke or she's she has enough money to pay off everyone she comes in contact with.

good day LA just onterviewed the paps at the courthouse, and it was more than telling. She asked them about selling photos and what they get for them (in general) and they said a few thou. She then asked, what about these? and swept her arm around the scene at the courthouse. The pap answers "oh, a couple hundred"

LMAO

Our jewellery stores have been warned to keep a watchful eye on her. With her playboy spread done maybe she will do some research on some real beavers...:)

Lindsay, please note that it only takes 16 Canadian beers to equal 20 American beers. Remember that on your lunch breaks.

It looks like Lifetime will finally officially announce that Lindsay Lohan will star as Elizabeth Taylor in their upcoming movie, Liz and ****.

Sources tell TV Guide Magazine that Lifetime has been waiting for the actress's legal trouble to be wrapped up before confirming her casting.

Exactly where did you get this info from, TMZ? I've heard the complete opposite, from quite a few other sources. There are also people petitioning in Canada to not allow her in the country. Considering her past and the fact that her most recently incident likely involved drinking and driving, I just don't see this happening. Plus, it would take much longer for it to go through the proper channels to be approved. Canada isn't that desperate for the small amount of money this piece of crap movie would bring to their country. Plus, there's that whole thing about her not officially even being offered the role. So....yeah. I'm calling BS on this.

Sure hope it's filming in Vancouver. No one in Toronto needs to deal with increased coke prices and supply shortages that will occur once Lindsay arrives in town.

Truth    

CANADA IS MORE INTERESTED THAT THE FILM GIVES WORK TO CANADIANS AND DOESNT GIVE 2 RATS ASS ABOUT LESLO. THAT'S THE REAL REASON FOR APPROVING THE WORK PERMIT. CDN FILM INDUSTRY HAS BEEN SUCKING THE LAST FEW YRS. WITHSTANDING LESLO IS THE LEAST OF THE INDUSTRY'S CONCERNS. #TRUTH!!
