"Good" cheese curds for a poutine?

Greetings all

Being utterly disgusted at there not being a SINGLE place to get a Montreal poutine in this city (read: chicken gravy, cheese curds, fries. The trucks out front of city hall are terrible in my opinion), I decided I would like to try someone elses advice from another forum.

They go to Swiss Chalet, order a family fries and use the swiss chalet gravy, and add their own cheese curds to it.

This sounds great to me, but the problem is, I haven't a clue where to get some half decent cheese curds suitable for a poutine.

I've seen small bags from time to time at my local A&P or Sobeys but they look like they've been sitting around in a bag since the stone age.

Are there any popular grocery marts that have some half-decent curds? A trip to a downtown Toronto market is out of the question since I live in Peel region

If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears

Thanks in advance :)
