Would this work for wheel bearing removal?

Front or rear?
For the front you do not need one really, but it can be useful if you do not have dremel.
Wouldn't you be able to rent something similar from Canadian Tire?

For the front, just remove the rotor and caliper and use the wheel as a slide hammer to remove the front hub. The inner race will probably stick behind on the spindle, but you can knock that off with a chisel and hammer (or air hammer if you have a compressor).

Rear, I bought this: http://www.harborfreight.com/fwd-fro...ers-66829.html

The threaded rod is a bit cheesy, but it works great. You could probably make your own from various bits in Home Depot for a lot less though.

You can just rent the kit for free from parts source for the rear. My rear wheel bearing is toast on the 320... Need to replace it before I go insane. Its so loud.

You mean parts source has a similar kit to the harbor freight one for rental?

Score! Good to know. Hopefully they can also rent a bearing separator, bubble flare kit and cutting tool for brake lines. I'd like to avoid buying tools that I'll only use once or twice.
