I am determined to attend medical school in Canada. Would love any advice regarding the few options I have

Currently studying for the MCAT and going into the fourth year of my honours Science undergrad-

1st year GPA 3.21 (technically 4.5 course load, including my initial grade and my improved grade for my 1 repeated course)
2nd year GPA 3.44
3rd year GPA 3.63

I'm assuming these are my options (based on years of obsessive research on forums lmao):

1) Do a 5th year. Attain 3.8+ in year 4 & 5. Apply to Western in my 5th year. If unsuccessful, complete a master's program. Apply again to Western and Queen's (perhaps Ottawa?) Any other schools I would have a chance at? 

2) Do a second undergraduate degree and open up doors to other schools. Could do this after completing my degree in four years or after doing the additional 5th year.

I am studying hard for the MCAT and would say I have unique ECs.
I appreciate any honest insight (optimistic/pessimistic). Thank you in advance!
