Default Brake experts in Quebec?

I'm in the midst of separating my old steel brake drums from the wheel hubs in preparation for switching to new cast iron drums. Does anyone know of a shop in Quebec (near Montreal, preferably) that has the tooling and expertise necessary to swage the new drums in place and machine them square to the old hubs?

Contact an auto related machine shop or search out a car club. Ottawa is 2 hours away and Kingston is 3 hours and they both have a Midas shop. Wayne

It's a bit of a logistics nightmare, but I am planning on sending all the stuff to the source where I get the cast drums and have them do it. (May not be an option for you folks in Canada )

I don't envy you the distance your package will have to travel but then I wish I didn't have the miserable exchange rate our Canadian dollar has at present!
