You don't say what you budget is?
If you are looking for top quality a single lens may not exist that fits the bill as this is quite a large span. The nearest would be the 18-200mm that have just come out. Tamron and Sigma both do one but I am not sure of the quality. The 28-135 you mention is a very good lens for the money but won't give you your wide end. You could use it in conjunction with a Canon 17-40 F4 or 16-35 F2.8. Or if the longer end isn't so important the 17-85EFS is well reviewed, often thought of as the APS 28-135.
I use a 17 - 85 on my 20D and it's a terrific lens but if I had a choice again I'd go for the 17 - 40 for the additional build quality and weatherproofing.

Not sure if I have a duff lens, but I seem to be the only one not blown away by the 17-40! It's ok, but an old 24-85 I use, seems much sharper. I've only had it about a month, but I'm quite disappointed with it. :-(
