Google Sibling Sidewalk Labs Unveils 'Smart City' Plans For Toronto Waterfront



After a year and a half of public hearings and criticism, Google sibling company Sidewalk Labs just unveiled its master plan to redevelop a stretch of Toronto's waterfront with "smart" features like snow-melting roadways, an underground delivery system and a slew of data-collecting sensors.
