How can I repair my broken plastic-framed glasses?

I foolishly left my plastic-frame eyeglasses lying on my bed last week, and managed to roll onto them and snap them in half right at the bridge. Is there any hope of repairing them? [mi]

I really love these frames and they are a couple years old and were hard-to-find when I originally bought them, so finding the same model to replace them now is unlikely.
I'm currently making do with contacts, so the repair is not extremely urgent, but it would be nice if they were fixed soon. However, my somewhat remote location (I currently live in Banff, Alberta, and have no car) is making that difficult. The only optician in town laughed at me when I asked if she could repair them, and suggested I just buy new frames.
I'd be willing to mail them away, but am looking for recommendations for places to send them for repair. I am in Canada so Canadian companies would be preferable, but other suggestions are also welcome.
