Looking for leaf lard in Toronto

Hi everyone,

My grandmother has been making a mouth-watering pate for decades, but lately she's been finding it very difficult to find the right ingredients because butchering just isn't the same and butchers aren't familiar with a variety of cuts.

So, while she's had no luck in her hometown of Sudbury, I'm hoping that Toronto has enough traditional butchers that I can find what she needs.

She's looking for pig leaf lard - a round elongated piece of fat with a thin film over it that's found under the ribs.

Anyone know where I could buy 10 lbs of this stuff somewhere in downtown Toronto? I don't have access to transportation other than ttc so I can't trek out to the suburbs to buy it - somewhere in central Toronto is necessary.
