Fresh hearts of palm in Calgary?

Does anyone import fresh hearts of palm here? I've only seen them canned. Thanks a lot.
I've only seen them canned (Sunterra) I expect they're quite costly to get in fresh. I'm heading to CFM Saturday, if I turn up anything I'll let you know :)
I researched this about a year ago and they don't exist fresh in Calgary, I called everyone. However, I did get a recommendation to order them online as they keep for about a month.
I have a chef friend in St Petersburg, Fl that orders his fresh from these guys (Costa Rica) and uses them at his restaurant in the Don Cesar...http://www.dekingofhearts.com/orderco...
I never really got around to calling them, as I decided it was less hassle to buy them canned. But this might be right up your alley, let me know if you do and how it goes.
Please note that these will be unavailable anywhere in Canada.
I ate hearts of palm until they came out my ears in Argentina (due to the ubiquitous "golf salad") and it was ALL ALWAYS canned. Fresh hearts of palm are not a delicacy that you'll find in most countries, never mind in Canada.
