^Really? When the Colonist and Times were in the same building some called it the golden age of good-natured media rivalry.

 

Buzz has some pretty high profile local ad accounts (Victoria Royals, Clipper Vacations, Bay Centre, Twsassen Mills etc.) so I think it's a pretty extreme rivalry now in that department.  There ain't much good-natured about the sales manager at the TC, I can tell you that.

As long as Buzz is fair about how much content they lift and share. TC always complains about competition but in the end they win: RIP Pennysaver, Victoria News etc.

 

Twsassen 

 

Good effort.

It is easy to remember. Tho I am a T-Towner. T-saw-was-sen. Say it ten times like that and you won't forget. The ferries is pronouncing it correctly tho just not how people that live there pronounce it. Like Pouce Coupé.

Oh. So isn’t that how everyone pronounces it? I don’t think I’ve heard it pronounced any other way.

Apparently it is supposed to be Tah WASS en.  I've kind of always done it more Sah WASS en, but with a hint of that starting T still. Any Tsawwassen nation folks around who can chime in?

I've been told by Tsawwassen people that it's Tah-wass-en and that us Vancouver Island people say it wrong (sah-wah-sen).

they don't say it wrong, they say it in a different language. the saanich word for it sounds to me more like ss-CHOO-athen. click here for what our locals call it. they're both salish languages so they might sound similar, but not the same. it's like comparing french & spanish.

I predict that the end - as we know it - is near for the TC.  The workers will likely be locked out by this time next year.  Then the paper will either fold or emerge from the labour strife with a very different looking workplace.

 

Or Glacier and Black Press will do some type of swap that works for them both, as they have done in many communities already.
