Kinda answered my own question, Canada Computers has a 4pack of "second generation" AA for $15.
IF you are willing to wait it out, Shoppers Drug Mart sells "Duraloops" for $6.99-$7.99 quite regularly. This is for a 4-pack, just make sure they have the white tops. If you don't know what "Duraloops" are, they're just the Duracell branded Eneloops.
Alternately, Costco sells Duraloops for $25. They are basically a 6 pack AA + 6 pack AAA, that may suit your RCs needs better (if you have a Costco membership).
