These two papers are available in Canada, through UniSource, which is a
paper wholesale place, but you have have a business licence and place a
minimum order of $300.00. I bought some Classic Laid to do my edition from
them. I also found that some large print shops carry it in cut sizes (8.5 X
11"), so you may be able to convince them to sell you a few sheets to try.
