Where to buy Beef Shank in Victoria?

I want to make rendang, an Indonesian dish that involves cooking the meat for hours until it's really tender. I think it tastes the best when it's made with beef shank because of the tendon, but I haven't found it in the few supermarkets I've checked out. Does anybody know where I can find it? I prefer if it's already cubed, if possible :) If not, it's ok too.
I would phone some of the more reputable butchers in Victoria, starting with the Village Butcher in Oak Bay and/or Glenwood Meats in the Westshore area. You could also try Slater's Meats.
I find that if I make a request at the Oak Bay Village Butcher, the staff there will try their best to accommodate it, or recommend a suitable substitute cut.
