You could also try to reflash just recovery thru Odin and see if it works.

You are in Canada but the L version is for the Latin America countries. So the firmware must be from one of that countries. Which one i can't tell you. You should ask your seller.
Nothing else...
...THE END.

Smile [problem solved]

Ok, I was able to restore the phone with /u/jstath1972's suggestion

1. I went to http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/ and downloaded the latest 'L' firmware
2. I used ODIN to flash the firmware
3. the phone REBOOTED!!!
(once the phone rebooted, the rest was easy)
4. powered off and ODIN flashed the lastest TWRP
5. powered off and booted into recovery
6. RESTORED NANDROID so wife would stop giving me the look
7. updated baseband as suggested: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2526831

THANK YOU THANK YOU

side note: i wish my work was this effective in resolving technical issues (just my 2 cents)
