    cadomain.com shows the best price is around $17 CDN. Internic and Webnames are some of the most expensive at $50, but have by far the best service (again, according to cadomain.com). Interesting to note cadomain.com shows same individual as admin as is admin contact for cirawatch.com, the entity being sued by CIRA? Kind of a Jekyll and Hyde thing? One site (cadomain.com) shows pics with individual running the site having fun with CIRA at their events?!?!

    According to the link I provided, Colin Campbell says they reduced the wholesale price from $20 to $12.50.

    With regard to various registrars, stay away from CIRA certified registrar Can Reg [canreg.com] (Infinet Communications Group), that's the home of infamous [google.ca] domain spammer J. Tang whom I wrote about here a year or more ago but cannot now find in the archives. I brought this to the attention of CIRA back then but they refused to yank his accreditation. A board controlled by registrars (which could or does lead to price fixing) and registrars who can do what they want without losing accreditation, hey, CIRA does look a lot like ICANN.

    Doug or anyone else in the Vancouver area can find Tang living in Richmond with an office at 555 West Hastings in Van. -g
