After launching in a few major cities in October, and then expanding to more second-tier cities in December, Google Street View has expanded to just about every populated area of the country.

After: North America on Street View
Of note is that now the entire Trans Canada Highway, from St. John’s to Victoria (or Sydney to Vancouver, if you prefer) is on Street View. If someone wants to waste a lot of time, they can construct a video simulating a drive from one end of the country to the other.
They’re happy in Edmonton, Victoria, Winnipeg, London and other cities left off the first wave of Canadian Street View now that the service has expanded.

I won’t bother reporting that Google Street View launched in Montreal and other Canadian cities today, since everyone else is already doing that.
But I’ll add this map so you can see what areas are covered (sorry Châteauguay, Vaudreuil-Dorion and St. Bruno, it seems you’ve been left out):

To check it out, we’ll start you off in true Gazette style, at the corner of Peel and Ste. Catherine. Now go and find all those embarrassing or quirky photos hidden in the city.
