I also avoided the 8 AM horror, but saw that LSA only has cans for 3 of the classes in C2... Any suggestions for finding other sources?

You can potentially get them from upper year students. To the best of my knowledge, all of the 1L professors were teaching the same class last year. All you need to do is find someone who took the same class and who is willing to share them.  If you buy your textbook second hand off the Facebook group page sometimes the student will throw in their CAN for the course as well. 

The LSA also hosts PASS sessions before the midterms and final exams where they have upper year students give exam advice. Sometimes CANs get shared in these sessions too. 

Finally, even if you can't find a CAN for your particular professor, there is a lot of overlap between classes in regards to what cases are covered. E.g. You can often look at a Criminal Law CAN from another professor and CTRL + F to see if the same case is covered. This can be helpful if you're struggling to understand a case and want to read a summary NOTE: Obviously this method has risks. Sometimes  different professors may emphasize different parts of a case. 

Edit: You can also probably get one from asking in the Facebook group. Around September the group created for 1Ls will end up having around 400-500 students because a bunch of 2Ls and 3Ls join to sell their textbooks, promote student groups, be nosy, post memes, etc. If you make a post in September asking for a CAN for the professor you'll stand a good chance at getting one.

U of A is known for having a really collegial atmosphere, and upper years are generally quite happy to share CANs. Make sure you sign up for an upper year mentor with the LSA (Law Students Association) in the fall, and your mentor can hook you up! 

And for those of you who got 8am crim -- It's worth it. Great class!

Who are the profs in C2? I'd be happy to send mine your way if there's overlap! 

And for what it's worth, there is no single CAN for any of the profs (at least that I had) that provide you with all the information you'll need. I ended up looking at several different CANs, including those for profs I didn't have,  and synthesizing the information into formats that worked for me. I would personally recommend doing something similar.
