Help! :( Citadel, Expedition Sport or Sedona DX?

Hi there, I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice as to which bike I should get. I am looking for a hybrid bike that is less than $500 CAD that I would be able to ride recreationally on both road and trails. I live in Vancouver BC and I've checked out some of the local bike stores near me and these are my choices so far:

Norco 2005 Citadel
$429

Specialized 2005 Expedition Sport
$450

Giant 2005 Sedona DX
$399

I know that the expedition sport should only be at around $350 but this is the best price I could find in Vancouver so far. Please let me know which bike (or another that you can recommend) would be your number one choice. Even better, if you are from Vancouver and you know where I can get a better deal for a hybrid bike in this price range, please let me know!

Thank you in advance!

Take a look at the GT Nomad line. I bought a Nomad(there are 3 levels) . It has same or better components to bikes named plus full braze-ons. I paid USD 370 for it. These have 700c tires. They also make about the same bike in 26".

I have an Expedition Sport (04) that I've put about 5K miles on. Done an MS150 and numerous 60-70 mile rides, and one 115 mile ride. Started out as a bike for riding with the kids while camping. It got bigger than both of us real quick. Upgraded to a flat bar and aeros for positions, and a Brooks saddle. I can recommend it, but I'd suggest you try a road bike before committing, maybe a used one... If I could do it over again, I'd have a road bike set up for touring.
