What can you obtain where you are?
As I am in a big city, I will restrict my answer to what I could locate in Edmonton, for plastic backed disposables and plastic pants, ignoring disposable underwear and other clothbacked entities.
I scoured the Aspen chain: near Saveon Foods near the municipal airport, Aspen @ St Albert, Homecare on Whyte...
And I poked my schnozz in Kingsway Rehab, (opposite Kingsway bus terminal)
And in Market drugs on 97 St./102 ave.
Plastic Pants first: I am afraid it's all bad news.
The spawn- of- satan awful Priva's that self-destruct as soon as you look at them have been dropped by Shoppers Drug Mart, but are at one or two London Drugs. My mind is repressing the locations.
AMG. makes cheap ones - $7 - but only !! in XL and XXL = waist 52"-62," one each of old stock still at Homecare on Whyte, some at Market Drugs on 97 St. They will work for a bit but won't last long; still twice the pant of a Priva, but a Priva barely beats a grocery bag with the corners cut off.

Kingsway Rehab (opposite the Kingsway bus terminal) carries the premium AMG's, $25, snaps, heavy gauge, loud, and not the least bit babyish. Built decently if not spectacularly by the looks of them, and highly functional.
Things now go from bad to worse.
Plastic backed disposables? gone. Kaputt. Finito. There's nearly no old stock left, like a bag here, a bag there of Kendalls at the Aspen outlets (which they say hold 2.5-3 litres .)
Other than that, it's all cloth-backed disposables. No more plastic pants at the medical supply stores north of the river; Earth's General Store on Whyte sells Gabby's but doesn't stock them ( either pp's or cloth diapers) ; they will only special order.
