I'll be very interested to know how you make out with this. Specifically, what C-41 self-development options you find available/accessible in Canada. I suspect that eventually this - or sending stuff away - is going to be our only option.
I'm counting myself lucky to have a local place that does a 1-week turnaround on C-41; $5.50 develop and $3.99 scan to CD for a 24 exposure ($6.50 develop for 36 exposure. Still not too bad; they do good scans. That said, I brought in three rolls of 35mm slide film. <cough> $13.99 per roll for processing (they send them out; week-and-a-half turnaround). Perhaps slides will remain a rare treat
p.s. congrats on the trove!
