If anyone has any suggestions as far as price & customer service please advise.
BTW, I do not want to purchase from the US due to the discrepancy w/Canon US warranty.

I bought mine at Futureshop $1199.99.
Check out www.futureshop.ca
I haven't found any other reputable stores that sell this camera, and if I am going to shell out over a $1000 for a camera, it won't be from the guy who sells Canons out of the back of his van.

It seems that the large reputable camera dealers in Toronto all advertise the G1 at the same list price of 1199.00. Try www.vistek.ca or http://www.henrys.com/ . I also recall someone posting about buying their G1 at the Pacific Mall at Kennedy and Woodbine, for a good price. There are a couple of camera stores in that Chinese mall.

I live in Vancouver, and managed to pick up a G1 last week at London Drugs for $1149.98CAD. This came with an in-store special for $50CAD off of any camera accessory. I used that for 50 bucks off of a 64M SanDisk CF card making it $119.98CAD.
Of course, don't forget to add Canadian taxes to those prices - here we pay 7% PST plus 7% GST (ouch!)

If you make your purchase at www.futureshop.ca now, you can purchase any one storage media at 50% off! It's a very good deal if you are eyeing the 320MB Compact Flash or equivalent.

Thanks for all the input.
Finally got mine just a few minutes ago....
Cost: $1150.00 + tax
Just made them an offer.
Also got aeroplan points and get 50% off my next compact flash purchase....all they had left was 16 MB.
