A good bike case available in Vancouver?

I have read all the threads I could find about bike cases and am definitely leaning towards a card case. Having transported my old bike by air on numerous occasions and used cardboard boxes (and once bubble wrap as an experiment), with my new touring bike I'm not willing to risk it being damaged. Some of the recommendations I've seen I'm sure are only available in the States. What are the recommendations for cases available in Vancouver? Thanks.

What shops have you checked? I would try the Bike Doctor on Broadway. Or you could try La Bicycletta (just down the street). Though they are more of a road bike shop, I'm sure lots of roadies take their bikes with them on some vacations, no?
