IF the rule of the short term applies, then it would only apply to works first published in Canada.
Any other interpretation would be silly. Otherwise one could find a country with (say) a one month copyright law, publish there, and then declare the work copyright free everywhere after a month.
Thanks for the correction! Always happy to be put right on these things.
