HRM – Today Google street view went live for cities all over Canada, including for all of the Halifax Regional Municipality and beyond.  Coverage includes all of the peninsula, Dartmouth, Cole Harbour, Eastern Passage, Bedford, Lower Sackville, Spryfield, Brookside, Greenwood Heights, Yankeetown, and the list goes on.

Surprisingly, those enterprising folks from Google made it all the way down to Peggy’s Cove and as far west as Chester.  Going east you see Lawrencetown, Musquodoboit Harbour, and if you turn onto Highway 357, you will eventually go as far as Old Guysborough Road, coming to a halt just before Elderbank.

On the Google website it says that Atlantic cities such as Charlottetown, Saint John, Sydney, St. John’s, Miramichi and others are currently being filmed, but it sadly doesn’t provide a date for when they will go live.
