I also have some cheap PET pop bottles that I can use whenever I run out of Grolsch bottles. Ultimately the plan is to acquire enough swing tops so that I never have to use the PET bottles.
PET bottles might be a good short term solution for you until you do find appropriate bottles. Just grab some 1L or 2L pop bottles from your friends.
I your case I would keep an eye on the local classified site like kijiji and usedottawa. I bought a bunch of stuff off those sites including 110 Grolsch bottles for dirt cheap.
Oh and don't get me started on the carboys and supplies I got off those sites.
Wait, I shouldn't be sharing these tips.....
