    Recommended Canadian Seats

    This list will be updated as products change and more feedback develops on a particular seat. If you feel a seat shouldn't be on this list please say why. If you think something is missing please say that too!

    If there is something that's too critical, too editorial, not in the same format...I'd appreciate comments on that as well.
