Google Goes to Ottawa

Google’s Canadian managing director was summoned before the House of Commons Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics yesterday, where he was grilled by Ottawa MP Pierre Poilievre (whom we’ve heard about before) about the privacy implications of Street View, the National Post reports. Note that Street View has not even launched in Canada yet. If a transcript is made available of the committee meeting, it will probably turn up here in a few days (look for meeting 29, June 17, 2009).
