I'm not aware of any other Canadian chemical retailers. One thing that
raises the cost of bringing chemicals to Canada is the brokerage fees
charged by most couriers. If I need to order something from outside
Canada I try to get it sent parcel post. Canada Post only charges a $5.00
brokerage fee. Problem is that is not quick, and many suppliers
won't/can't ship parcel post.

BTW Fotochem and Johny Dierre are the same company.

Speaking of Canadian Chemical suppliers, does anyone have a Canadian
supplier of Dimezone? Xenex can get it to me for ~$1,000/kg
