Source for good Caps/resistors in Canada?

Hi,
I'm trying to source a Canadian reseller (or at least a company that has a Canadian branch) of high quality caps and resistors.

I'm trying to get fancy-pants WIMA caps and the like without paying exorbitant duties at the border.

Any help would be awesome!


Thanks

Dave Cantelon, in Scarborough, Ontario. Don't know if he carries Wima but he has good stuff at good prices, and takes care of people. (416) 502****28

Both Allied and Digikey do consolidated shipments to Canada so the cost of importing is essentially nill and you get your order in 24-48 hours. I find more and more, the local electronic stores are only good for heat shrink and compressed air. Latest was a DPDT on/off/on in a bag marked on/on....only drove away $20 in gas to go there.
