Tripod required for Canada Visit

Hi I wonder if any of you can help me. I will travelling to Canada for a three week visit in June/July, arriving Ottawa and departing from Toronto. I don't want to take the tripod I am using as it's borrowed from a friend and is very heavy. I was wondering if I could:-

a. Hire a tripod for 3 weeks (The problem being returning it to Ottawa when I depart from Toronto?

b. Purchase a cheap one - Need someone to recommend shop or shops so I don't have to do a heap of foot work to find one.

Or

I could purchase one from someone in Canada/USA through this site and they send it to the address in which I will be staying in Ottawa. The disadvantage of this being I have to take the sellers word that it is ok and that they will send it.

Look forward to your thoughts.

Carol

Headshots have an arrangement with the Henry's chain of camera shops for collection and returning hired equipment. I think there are branches of Henry's in Ottawa and Toronto.

b. Purchase a cheap one - Need someone to recommend shop or shops so I don't have to do a heap of foot work to find one.

I've never been to Canada, but Henry's gets mentioned quite a lot (in a good way) by those who have.
