This is a longshot, but I'll give it a try...
A month or two ago I followed a link from a post here to a Canadian Bike mfg. I don't remember the name, but I do remember it was a touring frame. Sweet paint job in red and white, sort of a canadian flag type scheme. Can anyone point me to that site again? I'd appreciate it.
Found it. Guess I should have searched harder! It's an Oryx.
I am a couple of miles away from one of their dealers, so if you want to come to Montreal for the bikefest at the beginning of June to buy one, come and stay with me.

http://www.oryx.ca for anyone who's wondering... (though I didn't see a touring frame there)
