We're having great difficulty getting required insurance approval for the house we are trying to buy, all due to us having a web-based business. Please help!

Difficulty: Canada, and we've got until Wednesday to get this sorted out.
Insurance companies keep refusing us because we have a web-based (we make a couple hundred dollars a month off Google ads and hosting a handful of websites). We HAVE to get approval for insurance before the bank will approve a mortgage.
Basically, the insurance companies are making no distinction between having a hobby web-based business like ours and running a major web operation. Doesn't matter that I have a full-time job outside the home and that the server is located 688 kilometres away.
So, it appears our next option is lying and not saying anything about the web-based business or finding some company that will cover us.
Are there any other options? Any leads on companies who don't act like idiots when it comes to small hobby web businesses?
