Hi Chris. I don't know what is going on with Taste the 4th Sense. They haven't placed an order with us in a long time. If Gerry doesn't order it, of course he's having a hard time getting it. We ship to Canada all the time, and never have a problem, you might want to ask him what is going on. If you are going to order some stuff, I think it would cost less (for postage) if you ordered from www.peppers.com. They do a TON more international shipments than we do, and get much better rates.
As for having another Defcon Day in Toronto, it won't be this year, our schedule is already packed. We we're supposed to do one during Memorial Day weekend (May 24-26), but I have some family matters to take care of.
