In case anyone on Vancouver Island is looking for an Electrolux Assistent, Quality Foods is now carrying them. They are offering them at an introductory price of about $680 CAD. I think the regular price will be $850 and I'm not sure how long they are offering the sale price, but at that price, it's much cheaper than bringing something in from the US! Contact the main store in Qualicum Beach and ask for Sandy McClellan. He was very helpful.
