ISO pastrami or corned beef, not Montreal smoked meat

I should preface this post with the caveat - I have by no means done an extensive search for these products, only at a few Loblaws in midtown T.O. It's just something that's been on my mind, and something I've never been clear about.

Why can't I find pastrami or corned beef in the deli section anymore? And what exactly is Montreal Smoked Meat? Similarities/differences? I grew up in the FAR north of Ontario, and didn't have any exposure to MSM before moving to Toronto, so maybe I'm missing something. But in my mind these three products are all disparate. Are pastrami and corned beef falling out of favour with the sandwich meat crowd?

Should I just look further afield for my swiss melts?
