If you have relatives or friends in the USA, you can ask them to buy/order it for you. S@H Lego.com USA won't ship to a Canadian address. You can also visit the USA and get it a Lego Store down there. I paid my sister and Mom to buy mine and bring it back from the USA. It was around $160USD all together with sales tax at a Lego Store in the Boston area.
You can try BrickLink. Lowest I've seen is $250USD. Some Canadian sellers on BrickLink have it for around $300USD.

They do label the bags in the "easy build" sets like City Corner. Bag 1 & 2 is the bus and bus stop, bag 3 is the skateboard/bike shop, bag 4 and 5 is the pizza shop.

In my day when you bought a Lego set, in the box was an elephant gun. You had to hunt down an elephant and kill it for it's tusks and carve every Lego piece out of ivory.
My daughter and I just built this kit that Santa brought:
Bags 1 & 2 were the ATV and checkpoint. Bag 3 was the tractor, bags 4 & 5 were the trailer. Made it a little easier as she built the first two parts and I built the tractor and trailer. There are certainly kits out there without numbered bags as well.

Needless to say, I've recently been buying more parts online, my childhood has been brought back to life.
I thought about ordering the Beetle as it was on sale at Lego.com. When I went back to the site, they were sold out.
