Periodically there's someone looking for this in Toronto -- just picked up some organic Saigon Cinnamon at the Cheese Boutique today (Feb 11 2007)
If you're comfy with CB, swell. I get mine from H&H Supermarket in Mississauga--a large Chinese market with a decided SE Asian accent. I've seen it in several places along Spadina. Take it with you and ask. Kensington? Not sure whether you didn't get ground cassia.
For clarity's sake, true (Ceylon) cinnamon, cassia, and Vietnamese cinnamon are three distinct spices, and the latter is especially well regarded by some.
