BlackBerry Selling 3M Square Feet Of Space In Canada

It looks like BlackBerry is taking a page out of Sony's playbook by selling off property to generate some much needed cash.

The real estate sale is just the latest move by CEO John Chen to help BlackBerry raise cash and decrease its expenses.

In January, Fairfax announced plans to invest another $250 million in BlackBerry.
