Does anybody out there no of places in Canada that sells Quansa hut style hangars

Sorry to be picky, but: here in Canada it is not known as a "Quonset hut", but rather by the original name, "Nissen hut". Canadian Lt.Col. Peter Norman Nissen (1871-1930) was the inventor of the concept of cheap, easily portable pre-fabricated corrugated steel huts.


See further Nissan (sic) huts, Australian Nissen huts, and Quonset huts.


P.S. There is also a bogus claim that the Nissen hut was invented by a Norwegian, "Bjorn Farlein Nissen": WRONG! See generally this website.
