Webcam Press Realease

For Immediate Release!

To: All Metro Media

Date: July 20th, 2000

Subject: The Tall Ships get closer tomorrow at Noon!!

     Chebucto Community Net is making sure that their web cam is the best place on the web to see the Tall Ships and will be zooming in to provide Internet users an even closer view of the ships at noon on Friday, July 21st.

     From their web site,, the world can have front row seats for the event and best of all: no crowds!

     "We are extremely fortunate to have support from Dalhousie University and Fenwick Place, which has enabled us to produce a high quality view of the Halifax Harbour quick enough to be one of the first Internet providers to show the world Halifax's view of the Tall Ships. We wanted to offer this enhanced view of the Tall Ships as a gift to everyone who will not be able to see this spectacular event in person," reports Krista Jera Olmstead, Communications Chair for Chebucto.

     Gareth Shearman, president of Telecommunities Canada, reported, "As far as I know, this is the first time a Community Network Group has successfully launched a Web Cam. I don't know of any others that have done it anywhere. I think it's wonderful that Chebucto has accomplished something of this magnitude as a Community Net".

     Chebucto Community Net was founded in 1993 and is one of the oldest community networks in Canada, as well as being the oldest continuous Internet Service Provider in Halifax. Their mandate is, "To provide free access to the Internet, promote freedom of ideas and communication on the Internet and encourage individuals and community groups to use the Internet as a vehicle for personal and community development." They continue to provide free internet access and community services.
