Sounds like the best thing to do is get together with some friends for a Canadian group buy, and negotiate a purchase of E07 or E09 rears.
Each person buys 2 and it should help on overall price.
A well matched front tire is easy enough to source in the US.

you get $200 per person tax free exemption if less than 24 hrs visit to Canada (including all the family members). if i was living in Seattle i'd load the family up and go buy some tires. heck load all your bros up in the car and each buy one.

the reality is anyone living near the border could connect with someone on ADV (near the border on the Canadian side) and send them there and go pick them up. MX1canada offers free shipping (over $100, which is a tire) within Canada, so any 2 people close to each other on either side could make the exchange. I know for a fact Canadians are looking for better prices on US bought ADV gear (they pay high taxes) so the help could go both way. Maybe a thread needs to be started in the Canada thread about cross border ADV gear buying help. Just say you are bringing a gift for a friend and getting a gift coming back. I've sent plenty of boxes of gear to canada over the years labeled as gift (thus no taxes).

...I've notice Daniel is a complete no show these days.
