It looks like your only options at this point are to either request an adjournment in order to request disclosure OR to request a stay because of the delay.

Print a couple copies of this case: http://www.canlii.org/en/on/oncj/doc/20 ... cj150.html
Because you'll be making your 11B motion at trial, the prosecutor will likely go nuts in trying to prevent you from doing so by referencing the Courts of Justice act. The case at that URL is an appeal wherein the defendant was allowed to make the 11B motion at trial. I have heard that this appeal is being appealed though, so it may or may not work.

If I were in your situation, I would first make the 11B motion to stay, and if that didn't work, I would then make a second motion to adjourn for disclosure. Just make sure you don't say "guilty" or "not guilty" as that will start the trial.
