If you actually go through the points you will realize most of them are either theoretical (IQ, DR, color depth, noise), or marginal (viewfinder, shutter lag, fps) or can be easily remedied (battery life- get extra batteries, max speed- get ND filters). The weather sealing of the 60D is not sufficient, so I don't see how shooting in the rain with a 50% weather sealed camera is any better than a 20% weather sealed one.
T2i is actually a pretty good suggestion. Touch screen and video AF (STM) are great tools since the OP is interested in video. The weight and higher max ISO can also be helpful.
OP, I have just recently bought an 8-year old 5D. It works great (knock on wood). If you buy used from reputable sellers on FredMiranda, or even better, guaranteed used ones from KEH (they offer a 6-month warranty) then you don't have to worry about spending $$$ for repairs.
The OP specifically indicate that he/she wants a body other than Rebel. Whilst T2i/T3i are capable cameras, they don't match his criteria of choice. T4i has a similar 18MP sensor with touch screen etc, it is also in the Rebel category I believe and it is about the price of the 60D mentioned. The OP's list of choice i.e. 7D and 60D definitely has better construction than the Rebel bodies. Other recommendations are of course providing him/her different thoughts.
Buying from reputable sellers in Canada is definitely more expensive than from private sale. If the OP can find one used from private sale with transferable warranty, it is a good alternative too. Btw, for local private sale, the buyer don't to pay the 13% HST (sales tax) thus reducing the cost of purchase. Buying from US based companies is not worth the hassle, shipping and custom charges and return shipping added up to the cost and trouble.
I would further suggest the OP to continue using his bro's T3i if practical and save some more money for a 70D which may possibly have a lower price tag soon (Back to school and Boxing sales) or a FF 5D2 used which is also an excellent choice.
Sharing experience here is really a joy. I am learning from here everyday.
