pretty basic question, is there any way to turn a kit bass drum into a marching bass drum. or anywhere to buy used ones that would send them to canada?

Not quite a bass drum but I once rigged up a 12" side snare for caroling. I tied some leather cord under the tension rods and clipped a strap from an old suitcase to the cord. You'll need something a little more sturdy like Caddy suggested but it certainly can be done without drilling holes in your drum.

Or you could get yourself one of these. http://band-orchestra.musiciansfriend.com/product/Verve-Marching-Bass-Drum-Carrier?sku=491793&src=3WFRWXX&ZYXSEM=0&CAWELAID=259640790 Looks like it just clips to 2 of the tension rods.
