lead is harder to work with and you need to know how to do it.
bondo is easier and doesn't require too much skills.
finishing both is a different story
lead is not for beginners.

Do you think you can still get lead work done? Lead is a very restricted item now. You can't even buy lead solder, and all electronic components must be RoHS certified as lead-free. I don't think you will find lead body work being done in Canada.
