      Ok I must appologize! I thought red cable was #10 when in actual fact its #12. This is apparently baseboard heater wiring and its colored red (its a Canadian thing apparently)
      Learning something new everyday here geez..

      Rona sells a 10-2 in red also http://www.rona.ca/en/wire-nmd-10-2-75-m
      wth?
      Yeah the red sheath just means that the conductors inside are red, black and a bare ground. Come in 12awg and 10awg. Super common up here.

      You can get this stuff in any size from 2 conductor #14 up to #2. Just being red doesn't dictate the size. It just means the wire doesn't contain a white insulated conductor so it can't be used for a 120 circuit.
