should I spend the extra money and get a canon Polarizing filter or does a 3rd party filter work fine?

I could steer you wrong and not mean to but I don't think it matters. I have several 10 to 20 year old Tiffen Polarizing Filters and all except one, which I probably dropped, are still going strong.

Remember, the least quality glass in front of your camera is what will affect your image the most. When it comes to filters, I'd go with Heliopan, B+W or the like.

The best, bar none, polarizing filters you can get are the Nikons. They're oversized, so they don't vignette; they're 1/3-1/2 stop faster than anything else out there; and they're keyed so they only rotate about 195 degrees. That means that it's easy to get the filter off your lens. They are expensive, but worth every penny, IMHO.
