Are the blue Camping Gaz cartridges still commonly available in the US?

I have a backpacking stove that takes the Camping Gaz CV270 cartridges. These are the blue cartridges that look like standard propane/butane cartridges (MSR, Primus, etc.) but have a click rather than screw-on attachment to the stove. Nowhere in the San Francisco bay area seems to sell them anymore, and I can't find anywhere that sells them mailorder (though being that they're full of compressed gas, this isn't surprising.) Are these obsolete now? When I do a Google search, it seems like the only places that still sell Gaz stoves are in the UK.
