TDSI in Canada?
Due to a random fluke (that had nothing to do with me or the original
author), the following was rejected by listproc:

I don't know if there's a `Dinosaur Society of Canada'. I never
heard of `The Dinosaur Society' until I joined this list. I was
thinking of joining the one based in the United States.
Do you really think that since the Dinosaur Society was founded, it
is impossible to find poor dinosaur models in your own country???
If so I'd be impressed!
I myself was appalled to see the ones currently being sold in the
gift shop of the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology in Drumheller,
Alberta. If anyone should have good ones (and shun bad ones) I'd
expect the RTMP to! They used to have an extensive line of the
British Museum models, which were pretty good, but the current ones
on sale are fat old tail-draggers :-(
I found a few of the new and excellent Battat/Chicago Museum models
at the gift shop of the Calgary Zoo just about a month ago.
Locating good dinosaur models must be just like finding fossils, not
only do you have to be in a likely place to find them, you must also
be lucky that not too many dino-fanatics have been there before you!
