I just got a midi and I'd like to know why it doesn't meet Canadian safety standards too. After having the midi for a month or so I'd look at the next step up. I have gone through 5 bags already. It really seems to fill up quickly and it is still super light when filled. I'm using it for a bunch of built ins. If the CT26 has a bigger bag and isn't too large for you I would check it out. Other than that, I've had a from for years and it has been great.
