There's something wrong with this right?
Has Apple ever done this before, continuing something 2 generations old and discontinuing the previous generation? Or maybe this is just a Canada thing?

It's not just Canada. It's because Apple failed to upgrade the specs on the 3. If you had a 2, it was a fairly pointless upgrade. The only differences between the 2 and the 3 are Touch ID and a gold color and higher storage capacity option. If they offered the 3 this year, they would have to make the 2 for two price brackets down. This way they can put it just one price bracket down from the 4.
