Where can I find a glass fever thermometer, in Canada

I think they stopped making those because of the mercury in them.. I could be wrong though..I found this on wikipedia.com: Today, many mercury-in-glass thermometers are still widely used in meteorology; however, they are becoming increasingly rare for other uses, as many countries have banned them outright from medical use. Some manufacturers use galinstan, a liquid alloy of gallium, indium, and tin, as a replacement for mercury.
