Earth Balance soy-free buttery spread

Hey guys, I've recently found out soy and I don't get along so well in the stomach, intestine, and skin department so I've had to switch to a soy-free diet. Along with all the manageable issues (difficulty finding breads, no more fake meats, etc.) I've had quite a time finding a soy-free margarine (there aren't any around here). I asked my local natural foods store if they could order me some earth balance soy-free (they already carry a few earth balance varieties) but they were unable to. They think it's because the soy-free variety doesn't have french packaging yet (I live in Canada).

So, long story short, my mom is planning to make a trip to Seattle to look for soy-free earth balance for me. We've found one store in Bellevue that carries it but the thing is, we live in Alberta. Bellevue is quite a way to travel just to get some margarine. I was unable to find a store in Montana that carries it but if anyone on here knows of a place closer to Alberta where I could find soy-free vegan margarine it would be MUCH appreciated.

I don't expect to find much - this soy-free thing has me extremely frustrated with food and grocery stores to the point of giving up and subjecting myself to a life of boring labor-intensive food - but if anyone has seen this soy-free earth balance around and lives closer to Alberta than Bellevue please leave a comment with the location.
