Your dealership can flash the computer to turn them off... however it's a legal requirement to have them on in Canada (if the vehicle is built after a certain date), so some dealerships won't do it.

Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 108 requires DRLs on all new vehicles made or imported after January 1, 1990. So if you decide to disable the day time running lights you will either be told to re enable or will receive a fine.

I don't know about the OP, but I don't like the way they look. I know stupid answer. Kinda like a kid not wanting to wear a helmet when he rides his bike.
