I went the iDuino way. Future Logic (iDuino) also has lots of other parts you can buy. I posted information on an iDuino MPGuino thread, so maybe that will be helpful. They are also out of Canada, and their shipping was under $3.00 for my order (an iDuino and pretty much everything else I could get from them for the build).

I know a good place

Metro, there's a great place in the GTA I found a while ago and it came in handy when I was making a wire to hook my old truck up to my laptop to record engine data from the ALDL. They have almost everything you'd need (save for maybe a chip or two) and everything's dirt cheap.

Sayal Electronics, SAYAL Electronics - Your Source For New And Surplus Electronic Components - We Buy Your Surplus! I think, they have a few locations in the GTA, Oakville, and Kitchener. and the place is always HUGE. I always end up spending a good half hour to an hour there browsing the random crap they have there.

In Montréal there is a couple of place: Adisson, Maddison, Future, Abra, etc.

I never go to radio-shack, I only go to hobby electronic store, they sell parts, kits, etc.

Take a look in yellow pages I guess.

Montreal's closer than the GTA for me, but still 2 hours! I guess I'll have to stick to online orders (digikey) in the future. Thanks for the replies, though.
