Help! My propane tank ran out and I need an exchange or refill on Labour Day.

I have a yellow Superior Propane tank I usually swap out at the Home Hardware on Parliament. (It seems the colour of the label is important to retailers.) Anyone know where I can swap it on Labour Day?

    Swaps are not very cost effective. You can refill for $11 to $12 in my area, but a swap would be $20.
    Now that I think of it, any taxi service station will be open on Labor Day. Just call a taxi dispatcher to find out where, and take a cab to the nearest propane fill...

      Ouch! Not sure, but I thought most gas stations were pretty open about what they will exchange? Superior is pretty much a monopoly on propane. I also remember that once time we took a tank to some place South on Parliament or Jarvis, can't remember exactly where :(, but they were able to physically refill it.

        There is an independent gas station on Queen East at Lesie north side that refills propane..
