Default Is there a big difference between Canadian 2-row and Premium 2-row?

I am participating in a group buy, and I have two options for 2-row. I can get the Great Western Premium 2-row or the Canadian Malting Company Canadian 2-row.

Are these two malts practically the same? The price difference isn't huge, but I'd rather get all of one than mix and match if they are the same. Thanks!

Yes....one speacks French, the other speaks English. Big enough cost difference, I'd go with the cheaper of the two. 2-row is 2-row.

The Canada malting 2 row is very good. It also comes in a 25 kilo sack so you get an extra 5 pounds. I would not hesitate to get it

Ive bought a big bag of GW 2 row pale,dont know if that is different than premium,but was very happy with the beers I made.Seemed a little breadier than normal. Ive tried a lot of malts and Im under the influence that they all have their own character/differneces. Sometimes you can tell,like with German Pilsner or Canadian or whatever as well as wheat malts.
And nice dancing bananna train!

I've been happy with my Canada Malting 2-row purchase compared to Briess, but I mainly use it for super hoppy and super roasty beers myself.
