Fiber Fortress is winding down and not accepting new customers, according to the owner.
Quite a few ISPs are willing to let you place a small 1U rack server, if you already have a business relationship with them.  (Have fun with physical access, though.)
There's also Global Server Center (a division of The Exchange Group) which is Winnipeg's version of 141 Front St., and does offer 1U collocation.
You may have talked to the wrong part of BellMTS, you want MTS Datacenters, don't have contact info right now, sorry.  They have their own AS and domain.
In general, though, there are a lot fewer options today than 10yrs ago.  Mostly because everyone goes virtual, that being "good enough" for 99.999% of applications.
