Try a Saftey Superstore they have the widestselection (google them) the location I use it in Mississauga (just outside TO) at Hwy 403 and Dundas. I think there's a location in the north of the GTA as well...
Hi Thanks for all the replies, it's much appreciated! I'm in Danforth now after spending the first 2 weeks in Dufferin.
So far so good, people I've spoken to have been helpful and friendly so I am enjoying our new life out here. We don't have a car so I've been out and about exploring with my 15month ds in his sling trying to keep in the shade, it's so hot here, though I guess we should enjoy it while we can as I hear the winters are something else
get a baby backpack with a sunshade - over here in the wild west they are de rigeur (and a chariotcarriers three wheeler/ cycle trailer/ stroller - mozzie screen/ sunscreen or open to the elements as conditions dictate. they get through mega snow too and if you chuck a duvet in with the snowsuits, they are plenty warm enough down to about -25/30. perfect for sun or... er... what's to come)
My parents love the Danforth area, we usually go there at least once whenever I go back to visit. Yummy yummy Greek restaurants. And bookshops. And shoe stores... There's also a really great health food store called "Carrots" in the area - interestingly, it's located in a little square of shops etc called "Carrot Common"
