Thank you Brian, since this thread is empty I have an off topic question.
I can't seem to find any tuna in oil in BC, any comments?

Tuna in oil HHHHMMMMM
Can't say I have an answer. Always buy the water stuff and never look for the tuna in oil. That is a heavy question all right. We'll get the best men on it :o) Actually one would have to go talk to Jimmy Patterson. He more than likely is the problem.

Chuckle, yes I should call Jimmy up and ask what he thinks he is doing.
I need it in oil to avoid any freezing problem, you probably know that anyway, I like the idea of the extra calories. I read here somewhere that the oil enables better protein usage, I don't know about that but I will believe it anyway, no harm. I'm off on a quest then; I know where to get it in the states, maybe I'll try wholesale club.
Thanks anyway Brian.

Hello again Brian. Turns out after looking high and low; my own local independant grocer says he can get it for me, although the wholesaler said it will take a little extra time. $30.00 for 24 can case [170g], not bad really.
