^Carmanah is constantly being touted in the media as one of our biggest tech successes. If that's success, I'd hate to see failure.

The vast majority of local tech companies are small, private shops that keep their heads down and focus on their business. There are a number of extremely successful, industry leading firms that you have never heard about nor likely ever will. Unfortunately Victoria is the type of town where success is often criticized by some and abused by many. Let Duffy run an article on your firm and see how quickly insurance agents, realtors, stock brokers, charities, con artists, etc light up your phone lines looking for a deal or hand out. This of course is in addition to the jealous Government worker who lines you up for a PST, GST, HST, HRDC, etc audit(s) because obviously you are cheating if you are making more money than them.

The reality then is that when you see promo in the TC it is because the company is either public and the info is open anyways, or they need to raise money or their profile and are using the TC for short term gain.
