They don't ship in Canada anymore...What happen with the free trade agreement ????
Yeah, the whole story about why McMaster decided not to ship outside the US anymore is that in the late 90s and early 2000s they shipped parts to some Arab countries who requested restrictions on sourcing due to their anti-Israeli boycott, but did not report the boycott to the U.S. Government. McMaster was fined $8,000 by the U.S. Government for failing to report an unsanctioned foreign boycott. At that point, McMaster gave up shipping outside the U.S., because apparently it was too much work for them to just look at each order to see if there were any requested restrictions.

If you choose the halogen lights, then you only need the light plate with the large round holes in it, plus its two supports with large notches. If you choose the LED light, then you only need the light plate with the square holes in it, plus its two supports with small notches. In addition, if you use the LED light plate, I don't think you need to cut out all three holes, just the center one should work.
There are other parts that you do not need. These are the parts that would be used if you had a single-cable bicycle brake lever, but since we don't accept that solution anymore, you don't need the associated parts (see here). Also in the same place are shown two handle supports, one small and one large. I would just go with the small one. You don't really need the large one unless you find that the small one is uncomfortable.

Hope that helps!
