Auto paint in Canada?

I just went into the CMAX (Napa paint store) to get some touchup paint for a car.... there was some note on the door saying that new regulations ban them from selling mixed paint to the public. Is there any place in Canada that will still sell paint over the counter, or have the tree huggers forced me to pay someone else to paint my car? I checked on Gt3 orange at Cmax earlier this year, and it was like $615 for Dupont Chromabase/clear.

Canadian Paint supply

I just bought all my paint supplies from
Carlson Body shop supply Ltd
South Store
243-8087
4032-7th Street SE
Calgary

See Jeri

Very helpful and he knows his stuff. They handle Glasurit which is 3M now or also sold under the RM line. I think they also handle PPG.

cost of Paint is going through the roof

3.5L Acrylic clear and Hardener $ 285.30
3 quarts slate gray paint $ 348.18

good luck

The story I got was NAPA got sued by someone for isocyanate poisoning and won't sell the paint anymore. Other places like Calgery Autobody Supplies still do.
