Google Street View IconGoogle announced a massive expansion to the number of cities in Canada that are now available on Google Street View.

I decided to take short tour to see if any paddling shops are now available online.








Here is Nova Craft Canoes in London, Ontario. Not sure about the scary abandoned building in the background. Maybe it's cheap storage for them.

The Google car drove by the Paddler Co-op in Ontario. Agreat whitewater paddling school by the way.

Ocean River Sports in Victoria, BC has been listed for a while but it's always good to drop in and say hi.

It isn't a paddling shop but if you are ever in Peterborough, Ontario make sure you stop in and visit the Canadian Canoe Museum. Just outside of Toronto, it's absolutely fantastic.

Harbourfront Canoe and Kayak Centre in downtown Toronto seems to have a problem with giant headless swallows attacking people. Watch out!

The Google car didn't do directly by White Squall Paddling Centre in Parry Sound, Ontario but they did snap a photo of their billboard out on Highway 69. Looks like Tim's having a boat sale for a change.

The sad photo of the day award goes to Naturally Superior Adventures in Wawa, Ontario. The Google car started down their road then got either distracted or lost. They did catch this pitiful little directional sign showing the way to NSA.
