Hey everyone. I got some time to do the latest update to the board software, but it meant that all the old modifications and styles wouldn't work anymore. So, here you have the newest iteration of LabourTalk. Please let me know by Private Message if you run into any issues with the new styling. Some new features on the board are:

  • Latest HTML5 Responsive Styling - You can now see a new, more modern styling on the board. Along with this, you can resize the browser to see the board change with it. The board is now functional on all sizes of screens, including your cell phone, table and desktop/laptop.
  • Post Sharing - Although you could previously, the new layout means the sharing icons are more visible on the lower right hand corner of each post. Click your favourite social media outlet to share the desired post with them.
  • Multiple Themes - Previously there was only one theme in an attempt to lower the workload when modifications were put in place. Fortunately, the new modification system is much simpler to implement and we now have multiple colour options for you to enjoy. You can change these from your User Control Panel under the Board Settings heading.
  • Announcements - Announcements can now be posted here (where you're seeing this one) and, in most cases, can be dismissed. To dismiss them, please click the "X" in the top right corner of this box.
  • Collapsing Categories - Categories, such as News & Announcements or Welcome (below), can be collapsed to clear up some of the clutter. This state should be maintained as long as you're logged in.

We hope you like the changes!

We WERE all so impressed!!

Remember this wiz kid? Could it be a drug problem??

"U.S. authorities nab plenty of Canadians smuggling marijuana through the wilderness separating B.C. and Washington state, but it’s not often the accused are such high-profile, community-minded people as Chris Neary and Daryl Fontana.

To their friends and colleagues back home, they’re two of the unlikeliest drug smugglers imaginable.

Mr. Neary, a former director of marketing for Telus who helped create the company’s ingenious animal-themed ad campaign, owns Vancouver advertising agency Frank communications, volunteers as an art teacher at a local elementary school and dates a celebrity fitness trainer.


Chris Neary"

Check out his bio...anywhere on google. Even the rah-rah people have to be shaking their heads.

"Mr. Neary told federal agents he didn’t know how or why he got involved in this incident and said that he had really “fucked this one up,â€

So, are you saying every TELUS executive is involved in smuggling? He is a former employee and the animal commercials are excellent, he did a great job with that campaign. What he is doing now that he is no longer a TELUS employee is interesting but that is all, it has nothing to do with TELUS as a corporation. I hope he gets a approriate sentence.

Whoa Nellie! Was that what you got out of it? The point was even the mighty sometimes fall....hard.
And the appropriate sentence would be what?

Gotta disagree...They're getting ready to have a referendum in California (run by right winger Arnie) to decriminalise pot, so why would you want a "severe" sentence for these guys. Or to quote Bob Dylan "the times they are a'changin'"

So you are saying that if it was "smuggling" if someone brings a bottle of beer or a pack of cigarettes from Canada to the U.S. or vice versa they should get the same "severe" sentence because they were "smuggling"? (if it wasn't the pot, which everyone knows, no one cares about then what?). That is why Canada never arrested Mark Emery. Hey, do you live in the U.S.? Are you a Republican? Listen to Arnie!! We hope his referendum goes thru.
