Norco has a couple of dutch style bikes, my friend bought one called the Emma, the men's I think is called Richard or something. It's got Sturmy Archer 3 speed, proper hand brakes, skirt guard, chain guard, rear rack, not sure if it has a wheel lock, but it's brand new around $400. So it's very reasonable in price, and also available at Bikes on Wheels.
There's also a pawn shop in the bloor and landsdown area, don't know the name of the place, but I saw a bunch of new Chinese utility bikes, they look almost look a dutch cruiser, but more like a Raleigh Tourist with the rod brakes, these too have rod brakes, lights, rear rack, fenders etc... They're not Flying Pigeons, otherwise I'd be all over it, but they're only $230 brand new.
Also a bunch on craigslist if you're willing to put in the time in finding one.
