Where can I order Mylar for thrust tubes in Canada?

I would have thought I could figure this out by now, but I am in desperate need for an online store to buy Mylar. Can anyone point me in the right direction and were do you guys usually buy this stuff?

Google Graphix DuraLar.

It's available in a variety of sizes and thicknesses.

Or, check with your local art supply house.

Drafting supply or professional art supply houses should have it, when I was in Montreal we had a place called "Charrette" (SP?) to go to.

Sheeeesh I'll check out the shipping on that. We only ship USPS priority (6-10 days to Canada), but I'll look at it.

The material size was incorrect.
I'm out of town, and can't weigh the mailing tube. But I get it fixed up on Tuesday.
thanks for pointing that out.
