    Re: in the can ?

    I think "in the can" in this context means "complete" or "done". The expression comes from the world of film where when a roll of film was shot and finished it was put into a tin (or can). Hence "it's in the can". It's a rather odd expression to use in the context of the phrase you wrote.
