Ticker Ayling

The Ayling family is strong on the ground in British Columbia. The area has enduring links with RN/RCN over the years. (c.1910)
Penticton is a town with a strong Ayling presence and the nickname for Penticton is "Ticker" That's what they call it there.

A tenuous link?
Aren't all of your links tenuous? ;)
