Help me find a good long distance calling card

I live in Victoria BC, Canada. I need to find a long distance calling card for use from a land line, or some other solution, that will give me a good quality long distance call to Europe.

I have my M.Sc. defense next week. One of my examiners is in Europe, so we'll need to teleconference. The teleconferencing setup in the exam room requires me to dial out from a landline, but will only let me dial local numbers.
It was suggested that I use a long distance calling card to make the call, which is fine by me*. But every time I've bought a card from a corner store the calls have been fuzzy and laggy, and I'd really rather not have that for my defense.
Do you know anywhere I can buy a high quality long distance calling card? Are the cards offered by Bell or Telus significantly better quality than the corner store variety? Is there any other solution that involves me dialing a local number from a land line?
*No, my department will not pay. And the department that manages the the building my exam is in won't give me an outgoing long distance line. I've tried. The examiner may be able to call in, but I need to cover my bases and make sure I can call out.
