Searching for 20' railing top cap

I'm just completing a 10' x 20' deck with stairs along the shorter side. I am trying to find a solid 20' length of PT 2x6 or 5/4x6 for the railing top cap. Nobody seems to carry this length. Does anyone know where you can find this in the GTA?

20' long 2x6 not common

20' lengths are hard to come by. I have seen them in some lumber yards on the west coast but I think that was because there are a lot of local mills that work with excellent logs.

For some in Toronto, I think you would have to special order that and have your lumber yard ship the order off to a local pressure treating facility. That is your most likely option if you must have a full 20' length. Otherwise, start thinking of splicing two boards together.
