Rev,
       The reason you can't get 4T in Canada is the label language requirements.  It's such a great product, I hate that you can't obtain it.  I would tell you to take a looks at Amsoil Dominator 4 stroke oil.  It's a solid oil and one that we have tested to the point I can say it's a reasonable alternative.   Part of what makes 4T special is its a blended synthetic base verses a straight PAO or ester base material.  That gives you the best of each and in this type of environment it's added protection in the short and long run.

The fuel pump uses the crankcase vacuum to pull fuel from your tank no matter what position it is to the carbuetor.

Rev,
      I can't speak for what we haven't tested.  There are so many oils and even some of the BEST names in oil fall short in our engines.  The reason is they were never intended to be used in a splash lube system.  What you might get away with at 3,600 rpm in the lawn and garden world is failure at our bearing pressures and rpms.
 
With that said I can only recommend what we know works.
