Holiday St & Rue Plateau, Pointe Claire, QC

It should be in the north east of that intersection.
I found you have to change "Trans Canada Hwy" to "autoroute canadienne" or something like that. Google maps and MapQuest have no trouble finding it once you change the hiway name.

I run into a similar problem around here. There are three names for a given stretch of pavement - the numbered street, a common name, and hiway number if it happens to follow that street. And map software will recognize one designation, but not the other.

EX: I was looking for a bank and the 800 # said SW 150 99th Street. Yeah, but the map software only recognized the common name of Old Dixie Hiway. Well, I find the street in question and on the sign is "Old Dixie Hwy, SW 99th Street" (Name on top, number in small print underneith).

'nuf babling, I'm off
