Ottawa St is the place to be if you want to get CN and CP meeting, however, I must say, that in all my years of doing this hobby, and hundreds of hours spent down here, getting the meet is really difficult. I've seen it happen before my very eyes a few times and most of the time the lighting is just wrong, or they aren't in the right spot (out of sight where you can't be) or the locomotives are facing the wrong way. I've managed two really good meets: this meet from 2007 (RLHH/CP) posted a long time ago (I cringe at this composition/crop, believe me, I have a proper crop) and now the photo above. Here's to more. I'm fairly certain I'll get it again, but it may just be another few years.
