Ontario Butternut Squash

I remember Ontario butternut squash usually being available well into the spring (and the Foodland Ontario website says it should be around until March). In the last few weeks, trying a few local supermarkets, all I can find is butternut squash imported from Mexico, which annoys me greatly because I find it tasteless and squishy. A friend of mine says Ontario squash gets sold at a premium to Japan and then cheaper Mexican squash gets imported to us. Anyone know the truth? Or still can find Ontario squash at a major grocery store?
