Look on the web for your nearest British store, we have recently found some back bacon called Ayrshire Bacon in the local Thrifty;s in BC but dont think you have them. Safeways have also has a similar type, but not all the time. Ask any butcher, closest is what they call pea ham ( meaty bit , no streaky end ) http://www.petesfrootique.com/british_butcher.php
We took to buying the "back bacon" aka pea ham and at least it is the meat and no fat. This is in the bacon isles of most stores.

What they said

Also in your local Brit Store, you may find Ayrshire bacon or the Belfast Ham is a cut we are familiar with.

If I remember correctly, I think Snowballers do this, they might be able to "provide the bacon".

I believe Steve_p is the resident expert, he might be able to supply some contacts for you.
