Google Canada DayA Canadian Google Maps user is upset that Google Maps no longer shows the correct Canadian postal codes for addresses.

He posted his complaint in a Google Maps Help thread and listed some examples. One example was for the address, 10 Charnby Place, St. Catharines. The postal code should be L2N6Y3 but Google shows L2N6X7.
