東京の都市模型にIngressの世界観がプロジェクションマッピングされています。ARグラスで見ると更に圧巻なので是非。

また、展示の後ろにはSANZAIさんによる作品。ちょっと離れてよーく見ると、なんと「Tokyo XM Challenge」が!

On September 28, CP 20, RES agents across Canada came together to participate in #BlueCities3. Planning commenced back in April, city by city, region by region, team leaders were recruited to bury their city and region under as many bluetiful fields as possible. Canada is a large, diverse country, where in some regions Moose Units and Mermaid Units count more than Mind Units.

From east to west, our teams managed to field St John, NB, remote municipalities in Northeastern Ontario, Ottawa ON, Toronto ON, remote municipalities in Northwestern Ontario, Winnipeg MB, and Edmonton AB.

St. John New Brunswick, 4 principle layers +solitary fields off the anchors, 385 K MU
Ottawa and area, ON, 10 layers +4 layers off anchors, 5.8 M MU
Remote Northeastern Ontario, 3 combined fields, 264 layers for 1,026,274 MU. This is where Moose Units factor in!
Toronto ON, 22 layers 68 M MU
Winnipeg MB, 8 layers, 1.47 M MU
Edmonton AB, 31 layers, 12.8 M MU, ENL had taken down some anchors and agents were able to rethrow a couple more times, most fields were held for 4 checkpoints.

I would like to draw particular attention to our Ottawa area agents. One week prior to the Op, the region around the city was hit by 6 tornadoes. They had to deal with the damage brought down on their city and region, regroup their team, and alter the scope of their fields to make this happen. Agents you have my admiration and respect, truly strength in in the face of adversity to Resist. [1]

Quite possibly the most dedicated to making this Op happen are the Alberta agents, who camped out in the mountains to capture their remote portal. They woke up under a field of blue, and a blanket of snow. Winter is coming agents, you have have my vote for most dedicated to the Op.

Team Canada, you did amazing work on the international stage, your dedication to the efforts of the Resistance demonstrated your ability to pull together to make things happen, you altered the global score in the favour of the RES after our CP. RESpect to you, my Canadian homies.

While the respective cities were active, some guy named scooper31415927 was delinquent from his duties as country coordinator, but he did ensure that Sir Paul McCartney was bathed in fields of blue [2]

I am both honoured and humbled to have been included in this Op. Initially I was supposed to be a city TL, and as planning unfolded I got levelled up to become the Canadian contact. I am an unknown agent from a small city in the middle of Canada, so it was truly a privilege for me to get introduced to the international community and be acknowledged by an amazing group of planners from around the world.

Enfin, merci a mon frere bleu. You know who you are. QQFF bro?

Keep strong together, defend Resistance.

Thank you very much for the kind gifts from Japan's rucking community!!

I've been following the Tokyo Hikyaku Ruckers for a while, they are some hardcore agents who have embraced rucking as a way of life. I'm very honored to wear their shirt!

Thank you so much to: +Mickey P, @らいりー(Riley451, +minase, AgentARGO, +Keiichi Adachi, +Gene C. I will wear my patches and pin proudly!

Last night about 10PM, we were watching a movie with the balcony doors open because the night was cooling down. It's not unusual for us to be walking in the evenings few blocks away in our Greektown neighborhood out for a people watching stroll or stopping for gelato at this corner. We walked by there earlier in the afternoon. A gunman opened fire last night and targeted the passersby here, shooting 14 people. Many of our neighbors reported hearing the shots and screaming, but we were thankfully spared that experience. 1 or two are dead this morning plus the shooter, but there's lots of misinformation flying around.

While sadly these kinds of attacks now run rampant in the US, this is the third such violent act in my new city this summer and is shocking for citizens of Canada. We had a restaurant bombing and the van attack this summer (which killed ten), and now this so close to home. Experiencing this sort of thing all over again but in another country is a little surreal. While the US has grown jaded to it, Canada's so fresh and no one expects these kinds of things to happen here. Please keep Toronto in your prayers.
