Google Street View Now in Canada

October 26, 2009

Picture 25

Google Street View was recently launched for 11 cities in Canada. The Canadian government has been very public about their apprehensions with this new technology. They have expressed their concern for the privacy of citizens and their homes.

Google has blurred all faces and license plates in order to ensure the privacy of any individual who may have been included in a photo. Google has explained the views are all taken from public streets, and do not violate anyone’s privacy. Google has included links for reporting any concerns a person may have. Any concerns that are reported will be reviewed. If they are found to violate a persons privacy, they will be removed.

The Street View technology is available on iPhones. Simply enter in an address, and you will get a clear view of the building or landmark you are looking for. Street View uses images that are patched together from several different angles. The Street View, gives a user a 360 degree view of a particular street address. This application was first launched in the United States in 2007. It is currently available in 10 countries.

A few local residents are a little embarrassed about the pictures that were taken during the garbage workers strike. Several of the local parks were filled with garbage and those are the pictures that appear in the Street View. Mayors of these particular cities are hoping to increase tourism with this latest technology.

The Canadian cities that are included in the Street View thus far are as follows; Halifax, Toronto, Quebec City, Calgary, Montreal, Squamish, Whistler, Waterloo, and Ottawa Kitchener.

Linens 'N Things Resurrected (In Canada)

October 23, 2009

In today’s marketplace, going out of business doesn’t mean you go away forever. Your storefronts may disappear, but you’ll just pop up again online—like CompUSA and Circuit City—or you’ll come back on someone else’s shelves as a brand, like Linens ‘N Things.

The company announced in a press release last week that it’s signed a 6 year deal with Home Outfitters, a home goods retailer in Canada:

…under [the agreement] a special line of Linens ‘N Things branded home goods will be produced and exclusively sold at Home Outfitters in Canada. The agreement, which includes a broad range of bed and bath, home decor as well as seasonal products, extends through 2016.

Calgary CMA's new home price decline fifth highest in Canada

October 19, 2009

forsalesigns

The Calgary census metropolitan area registered the fifth highest 12-month decline in new house prices in August, according to Statistics Canada.

The federal agency’s New Housing Price Index, released today, indicates contractors’ selling prices dropped by 6.3 per cent in Calgary from August 2008 to August 2009.
The biggest decline was in Edmonton at 11.4 per cent followed by Victoria (10.0 per cent), Vancouver, (7.8 per cent) and Saskatoon (7.6 per cent).

Nationally prices fell by 3.1 per cent in those 12 months.

On a monthly basis, prices rose by 0.2 per cent in Calgary from July while in Canada they rose by 0.1 per cent.

Statistics Canada said the largest year-over-year declines remained in Western Canada “where prices decreased from highs registered in late 2007 and the beginning of 2008.”
“Over the past few months, some builders in Alberta and British Columbia have offered lower prices, bonuses and incentives to motivate sales in the face of weaker market conditions,” added the federal agency.

Among the surveyed cities, the biggest year-over-year gain was experienced in St. John’s at 7.5 per cent followed by Quebec City at 6.3 per cent.
