ISO Fatty Pork for traditional French Canadian tourtière

Splendid Wine Snob | Dec 8, 201007:59 AM

I've been attempting to replicate my grand-mère’s tourtière recipe but I have had problems the last couple of years in finding pork that has a high enough fat content (seems that they are breeding them to be leaner than in days of yore). I've tried Berkshire from Cumbrae's but it didn't give me a good consistency at all-almost watery even (surprising since its known for high fat content).

Can you hounds help me with finding the fattiest pork available in Toronto? Which butcher in Toronto specializes in pork? Thanks in advance.
