I just bought the snow blower after reading the good reviews and eager to use but on reading prior community post, I see that the scraper bar for snow blower wears quickly and I have interlock driveway so I'm probably very prone to wear or breaking the scraper since I hit edges all the time with a snow shovel.  

So I thought I will order a backup while waiting for the next snowfall.  I saw that this is available at homedepot canada online but they charge $40 !!! for this piece of plastic.  Is there a cheaper way to get this in Canada?

As an aside, I also noticed that a snow blower belt that homedepot us charges $17 has a price at homedepot canada of $70 !!!!.

I think the gouging in Canada (which we are use to to some extent but this seems excessive) should be considered as I understand these are wear and tear items and not warranty covered.

HD USA has the belt for $17 and the scraper for $19.

HD Canada, what gives???

For the belt, I’m sure a Gates brand or similar makes an equivalent replacement for way less. We’re screwed for the scraper, though. :-(

Thanks Mcklain!!.  Much more reasonable price.  They do charge shipping but option of free local pickup at an ego dealer (35 minutes away for me). 

A lot of their prices for ego products are cheaper than home depot canada although some are cheaper at home depot.  This is a great site for anyone buying Ego products in Canada to compare to homedepot.

I notice in the US it almost looks like gouging. Amazon and HD had them for about $19. Then all of the sudden it jumped to $32 on Amazon. If you look at Amazon price tracker it was as low as $7.50 last August.
