Broker that accept Canadians / SPAN margin

I live in Quebec/Canada and I'm currently trading futures options with IB. They have a good service and pretty nice commissions however their margin requirement for futures options is very high.

Here's what I'm looking for:

- I'm from Quebec so the broker must accept canadians
- I only trade short futures options
- SPAN margin, or atleast a low margin requirement for options selling
- Reasonable commissions

I've already contacted RJ O'Brian and their commissions are way too high (about 25$ per leg) a single option transaction would cost me at least 100$.

Thanks in advance.
