I did mean to post the location here, in case anyone was curious.
The photo looks east across Yonge St. at a point about 900 feet
north of 16th Av. in Richmond Hill, a suburb north of Toronto.
There are shopping malls on both sides of the street, and the
traffic-light "intersection" is with one driveway for each of them.
The position is 43.8555,-79.4336 in Google Maps style.
