I currently have a small hide bag (brand new and well seasoned) on my set of bagpipes. It leaks at a stock that has been well secured with straps and rubber tape. Should I attempt a reasoning, try to repair, or get a medium Canmore bag?

"properly" seasoned and tied-in, your bag should not leak. it really should take nothing more than the waxed cord to secure your bag to the stocks. if the bag has good years left, i would rectify the current situation. however, if it becomes frustrating, i suggest that you try pipes with different synthetic bags if you can. this can be done if you have access to a highland store or if you play in a band.
this suggestion is made as many of the synthetic bags feel very different under the arm. your comfort level may be different than mine.
i went from hide to a ross canister. it felt best to me and had the added feature of moisture control.
best wishes
