Where can I find Canadian cussing?

I'm working on a book of international curses and insults and I'm supposed to write a section on the U.S. and Canada. Now, I have no problem finding examples of invective by Yanks, but (like a typical Yank) I'm completely at a loss when it comes to the Great White North. I'd appreciate any pointers to good use of wicked language by Canadians (doesn't have to be obscene; cf. Twain's "Harte is a liar, a thief, a swindler, a snob, a sot, a sponge, a coward..."), old or new, online or off. Thanks!

What's a good Canadian on-line shoe-care source?

I'm looking for an online store to buy a shoeshine kit in Canada- any ideas? I'm living in Wells, BC, and the only nearby town is Quesnel. Wal-Mart has the stuff, but I flatly refuse to buy anything from Wal-Mart. What is a on-line Canadian shoe company that I could buy polish, brushes, etc. from? I'd like to keep it in Canada, so I don't have to pay international shipping.
