Submission + - Google Street View May Be Illegal in Canada (

Jay writes: "Jennifer Stoddart, Canada's privacy commissioner, has recently suggested that Google Street View may be illegal in Canada according to the country's privacy legislation. "In particular, it does not appear to meet the basic requirements of knowledge, consent, and limited collection and use as set out in the legislation." Stoddart has written to both Google and Immersive Media, Google's collaborator in the Street View technology, for a response to her concerns. Google Street View is not yet available in Canada, though continuting expansion in the United States suggests that it likely will be in the future."
