A longish article but stay with it to about the 15th paragraph or scroll down if you don't have time. Look for IQAggregate.

Whoa. Well that was interesting. A little dystopian, too.

Why Victoria? Who knew we were even on the map to these people?

Ya, this was reported back in February.

I don't think it's any big deal.  They bought some google and youtube ads etc.  They were smart about targeting.  They did not enter people's brains, they just showed them ads.

^ Yes, but now that the dust has cleared, it appears that they are being singled out again. Hang onto your hat.

Have a look at what their skill set is.....and if you wanted to go talk to them in person you would have to mail yourself to PO Box 8426 Victoria Main. EDIT: or go to Market Square.

I thought so, too. Certainly raises the profile.
Interesting on last night's National they never once mentioned Victoria, only BC and one mention of Vancouver Island. It seemed they were deliberately avoiding any mention of Victoria. News stories are not normally vague about location.
There was one fleeting image of what might have been Market Square but it was gone before I could focus. And there was one very greyed-out misty image of The Empress for about a second before it too disappeared.

Unfortunately it is the sad, dark truth about the local tech industry. Much of its 'success' is tied to firms with questionable business ethics and shady business deals related to affiliate marketing and data mining.

I've often thought given the plate of crapulence she inherited that Theresa May has actually comported herself quite well in what really for her politically was/is a lose-lose-lose situation. It will be fascinating to see how the Brits manage to stick-handle this issue through the muck and successfully home. Or not.

I think it’ll just come down to the wire. right now there are likely 6 ideas. and not one of them has 50% + 1 support. but as mar 29 gets a lot closer one winning idea will present itself as better than nothing.

In the course of a political crisis of this scale, anything is possible. It could happen. But right now there are too many factions: some want a whole new deal, or a drastically amended deal. Others want an election. Others yet want a second vote.

coming down to the wire.

 

The shadow chancellor, John McDonnell, has said the Labour party will whip its MPs to back a second referendum rather than offer a free vote, a move that the senior backbencher Caroline Flint warned could lead to the rebellion of up to 70 MPs.

 

McDonnell said it would be common practice to see MPs whipped to support party policy, but he understood the difficulties such a decision could pose for MPs in leave constituencies.

i believe a second referendum now would cause street rioting like britain has never before seen.  they need to exit.

Regardless of how a second brexit referendum goes, it won't look good. If there is a yea result again, then it's back to the mess they've been going through. If it is a nay result, is that really any more or less representative than the first time 'round, and what other issues would it cause?

Lest we forget the yellow vest protests are still occurring in Paris despite a near media blackout as far as our local sources of news are concerned.

If politicians bungle Brexit will the issues and reasons that brought about Brexit in the first place just disappear, or will there be social unrest a la France?
