even in Toronto they have cctv cameras in the clubbing district, and probably there will be more and more, but if you live in the suburbs i'm sure your house won't be live anywhere.

lol nice conspiracy theory.

Use your head, there is no way to get live street view of everything. If anything these images will be static for a very long time.

Not yet there isn't, but do you honestly believe they won't try?

No. Toronto already has hydro meters that send in monthly usage data via wifi, So people don t have to walk around to check them. How hard would it be to install wifi cameras to use that network? Google has the money.... Few locations like "traffic cams" at first and then some more

Not hard but think of how many cameras would be needed, and they still wouldn't cover the same view the streetview does.
