ISO: Charlotte/Mara des Bois strawberries

Cheap strawberries abound now at the supermarkets! However, I still cannot shake the taste of the strawberries I got from a market in Paris...completely unlike anything I've ever eated in North America - they actually have TASTE! My French skills were non-existent, but I swear I was told they were "Charlotte." Obsessive Googling later revealed that it is a cross of "Mara des Bois," another exceptionally tasty variety. It seems the government has approved cultivation of Charlotte (, so does anyone know if they can be found in the Toronto area? Or anywhere in Ontario? Montreal?
