Where can I buy canning tongs in Vancouver?

I have only seen them in one Canadian Tire in Vancouver. Anyone know of any other place that sells these tongs in Vancouver/Richmond/Burnaby or anywhere in the Lower Mainland?

      I was looking for the ones that fit over the whole jar so that I can pour out the water from the jar and also extract after the whole canning process is over.

        I've seen them at Home Hardware on Commercial.

          I've seen them there too. They also have wide-neck stainless funnels for canning jars that catch all the drips!

      Grocery stores. I found some at Save-On.

        late to the table here but i've found many canning supplies in rummage stores - including those special curved tongs that i think you refer to in your OP

        i often see the big blue color canners with the rack

        nb - never re-use the lids ---they are single-use regardless of appearance. The rings i think are OK as are the good jars in perfect condition.
