Alternative Distributors To ADI, Tri-Ed Adn Anixter In Canada?

Besides ADI, Tri-Ed and Anixter, does anyone know of a Canadian distributor that is any good? Ideally someone who sells HIKVision products.

What spurred this on was our attempt to purchase three HIKVision DS-2DF7286-AEL PTZ cameras (the one with IR) only to find that neither ADI, Tri-Ed nor Anixter had any stock across the country. I find it extremely frustrating because the only real job of a distributor as the middle-man is to keep products in stock and they can't even do that. Why am I buying from a distributor at all if they're just placing orders from a manufacturer and drop-shipping.

In short, we're looking for alternative distributors - anyone have any good recommendations?

Thanks!
