Default Supreme Commander discontinued?

I spoke to a few EBGames stores yesterday and none of them seem to have Supreme Commander in stock. One of them also said that he was fairly sure it was discontinued. Looking around I can see that NCIX sells it and Newegg as well sells it....but only on backorder and preorder. All the big box stores like WalMart, Best Buy, Future Shop and such don't seem to carry it, or at least at reasonable prices.
I looked at Impulse and they have the game and expansion for around $25CAD each. But that's a digital download and with Canada's monthly bandwidth cap (/rage!) that's 20GB right away + updates.
Does anyone know where one could purchase both the game and expansion (or gold pack including both) on disc in Canada..or Ontario?

Set your shipping address to Canada and they will ship it to their Canadian distribution center and on to you.

Yeah, it honestly looks like your best bet it either digital download or a used copy, as I can't find a copy in any of my online "connections".

Didn't work for me. Said there was restrictions or whatever.

I was going to post it but after trying I decided not to.

I was in my local London Drugs tonight and they had 3 copies of SC Gold Edition for $30 each. I checked their website and it is not listed so might be worth checking if there's a London Drugs near you.
