- Veer shutting down Calgary office:
"Veer is closing its local office, eliminating about 80 jobs as the work is moved to Seattle.
The branch will close by the end of the year, said Jennifer Morgan, Corbis' senior director of corporate communications, as the company centralizes its operations in Washington [Seattle].
Founded by Brad Zumwalt, [he] couldn't be reached for [a] comment.
Veer's Calgary presence has shrunk in recent years, from a reported 150 employees in 2007 to about 100 a year ago to the 80 affected by Corbis' relocation decision."

So no more future lunch questions like: "How are things on the other side of town?", like during the past years, long ago.
