Need help navigating Montreal with two stops along the way.

Montrealers - does this driving plan (Ottawa to Vermont, with two stops in Montreal) make sense, or can you suggest better alternatives?

My wife and daughter drive Ottawa to Vermont every summer. This year the trip is complicated by the need to a) pick someone up in Outremont, and b) drop me in the vicinity of Papineau/Sherbrooke. They need to end up on the 10 going east. I believe they turn right someplace near Magog to a border crossing.
My suggestion from looking at Google Maps/Street View is:
- Decarie to Edouard-Montpetit. Navigate to pick-up in Outremont.
- Mont-Royal E to Papineau. Drop me off at Sherbrooke.
- Jacques-Cartier, following the loop around Tascherau to end up going south on the 20/132.
- Some distance before the Champlain bridge there is a sign for 10/Sherbrooke which takes you on to Marie Victorin and eventually winds its way onto the 10. After that they'd be good.
Another option might be to take the 40 to Papineau, follow it all the way to Sherbrooke, drop me off, work back to Outremont and then the Decarie, at which point they'd be good. Might be a bit simpler, but longer.
Or they could drop me at Outremont metro and let me figure my plans out for myself, leaving them to only do the pickup and get back to the Decarie.
Guidance would be appreciated.
