Spanish Olives in Toronto

I've tried some of the bulk olives in places like Loblaws, but they aren't what I'm looking for. I am searching for some small snack olives from Spain.
Where can I find bulk (or packaged in larger containers) olives like this? I am in Leslieville, don't want to travel far.
Unico has Spanish olives stuffed with anchovies (white ones). A number of Loblaws and other stores carry them. They're a great snack.
This may seem a little unusual but The Bay at Queen has the small containers that I get in Barcelona - they are located at the west end of the store in the basement in their food court. There are 3 different varieties.
My absolute favourite are the stuffed ones by Fragata. Small cans, Should retail around $2. I've seen them at Scheffler's in SLM, Leslieville Cheese, Pimenton on Mt. Pleasant.
I've had the lemon ones, anchovy, tuna and garlic and they're all good!
I found a European restaurant supply shop in West Toronto, and bought a gallon of Arbequinas. For the life of me I can't find that place. It sells all kinds of Euro foods, is in a busy part of commercial businesses and a ground floor level shop with parking. Anybody know where this is? I thought I had the information, but I don't.
