Yeah, he does not seem like the kind of person you'd put in charge if you were trying to establish credibility as a serious journalistic outlet. The petty, unsophisticated, adolescent social media antics don't instill great faith.

Today he is feuding with Stirling, denying that council has any desire to defund the police. It's really something to see him gallantly rushing to council's defense over this. At least he isn't trying to disguise who he works for, I guess. But let's drop the "journalism" act, shall we?

Agreed. He is one angry dude. I think at some point Andrew is going to realize that the Capital isn't going to become a global juggernaut and replace MSM so he will shut it down.

We're expanding our coverage to the Westshore!
You live in the Westshore for a reason.

Maybe you moved here for the bigger houses, the great schools, the fast-paced growth. Maybe you’ve always lived here. But there are more and more people like you, and we want you to know we see you.

We’re launching a newsletter soon that’s specifically for you: The Westshore. It will take on the stories specific to this part of the Island, from transportation and development to lifestyle, crime, politics, and arts. It will be tapped into the diverse communities of the Westshore. And it will be in your inbox every Tuesday and Thursday.

We know you care about your community—you wouldn’t already be getting Capital Daily if you didn’t. Now we’re putting a magnifying glass on your city, your neighbourhood, maybe even your street, taking a closer look at communities that have been starved for coverage for years.

How is the capital daily funded?

 

by a "billionaire" investor.

 

https://www.cnbc.com...ding-debut.html

 

If you haven’t heard of Andrew Wilkinson, then let me introduce you. Wilkinson is the founding CEO of Tiny Capital, a long-term holding company for businesses that specializes in acquiring majority or whole stakes in “profitable, simple, and often boring” internet companies. He’s the college dropout behind a multi-million-dollar success story; the man who thinks of himself as the tech equivalent of Warren Buffet. He’s the Victoria, BC, resident with the mindset of a Silicon Valley whiz kid. He’s the CEO who wants every sale, every acquisition, and every deal to be signed, sealed, and delivered in 30 days flat. He’s the businessman sat at the helm of an empire comprising of over 30 companies with a combined value of between C$600 million ($471 million) to C$1 billion. In short, he’s someone you need to know more about. Do just that with these ten things you didn’t know about Andrew Wilkinson.

Wilkinson’s education is a world away from where he’s eventually ended up in life. After graduating from Oak Bay High School in 2004, he won a place at Ryerson University studying journalism.

I won't double post here since it is already in the Langford thread, but they are definitely not viewing the Westshore in a good light.  It could be that the Westshore population is now big enough to support the SJW and eco-warrior crowd, or something more strategic linked to the various political entities at UVIC.

Sounds like the BC Liberals had the wrong Andrew Wilkinson at the helm.

Grey whales are swimming by Vancouver Island right now on their seasonal migration to Alaska

 

The species has a long history with Indigenous peoples and settlers alike

 

https://www.capitald...ancouver-island

 

 

During the creatures’ time spent on the endangered species list, which was also during the heyday of marine parks like Sealand in Oak Bay (closed in 1993), many settlers discovered a great love for these intelligent mammals. 

 

_____________________

 

A western scientific understanding of these creatures has rapidly developed in the last half century to allow settlers and non-whaling nations to grasp the scope of what was lost, and what is still at stake.
