Canada Thursday reversed its decision to bar convicted felon Martha Stewart from attending a Pumpkin Regatta in Windsor, Nova Scotia.
The government's refusal to let Stewart into Canada because of her conviction for lying about a stock sale drew fire from Conservative Foreign Affairs Chief Stockwell Day.

Stewart still must get permission from her U.S. probation officer to leave the country, however.
