I contacted the Canadian distribution telephone number for Western Canada, and the fellow phoned me back a day or so later. He kindly explained that MMO has not been available Canada for a little over a year now. Seems the company was being required to re-label its products in both English and French in order to qualify to have it imported into Canada, and they chose not to spend the money on converting their English-only labels to English & French, just for the Canadian market.
So, your only hope of actually buying some in Canada is to find a retailer who has some old stock ....shouldn’t matter how old the stuff is. Chances are, you’ll find it in the strangest places ..so just keep asking. I called a True-Value Hardware store in a nearby small town ...they had some up until a few months ago, but were sold out and didn’t know why they couldn’t get any more. (I didn’t have the heart to tell them!) Then, I was in a local Castle Building Centres store (they also carry hardware, and oils and stuff) and I asked the guy if he’d ever heard of MMO, and he said, “Sure, there’s some on the shelf right over there!” ...I almost hugged the guy. He had 4 gallon jugs on the shelf, and said he had the rest of the case in the warehouse. Turns out Castle Building Centres is a member of the same “buying group” as True-Value Hardware. There are other regional stores that are members of that same buying group, so chances are they might have some in stock as well. So, in addition to True Value stores, look for “V&S;Stores” and “Country Depot” stores. Check out: http://www.truserv.ca/pls/truserv_pub/truserv.app and click on the Store Locations finder. There are stores all over Ontario that belong to the Truserv buying group. In Toronto, there’s Roncesvalles True Value Hardware, on Roncesvalles Avenue.
Hope that helps!!
