Google Maps Goes North

It looks like Google has extended its map database north of the 50th parallel.

It looks like Google has extended its map database to include locations north of the 50th parallel. Now people can get travelling information for Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Saskatoon, Winnipeg and the like.
Very cool.
There are a few bugs still. For example, Happy Valley-Goose Bay in Labrador does not have street names and you cannot zoom into the maximum amount. Other than things like that, it rocks. Can’t wait until it’s out of beta.
Now if they could just allow me to scroll with my scrollwheel.

I live in Lethbridge with my spouse and 5 of our 6 children. I’m a writer, focusing on political news, social issues, and the occasional poem. My politics are radically left. I recently finished writing a book debunking several capitalism myths. My newest book writing project is on the labour history of Lethbridge.

I’m also dichotomally Mormon. And I’m a functional vegetarian: I have a blog post about that somewhere around here. My pronouns are he/him, and I’m queer.
