I'm hearing there have been no aftershocks to the Victoria/Vancouver quake. One, is this correct and two, is it a reason for concern?

The reality is that there is no proven science to much of this. There are people who have dedicated their entire professional careers to this science, using decades of research to come to their conclusions, so there is absolutely no way a bunch of conspiracy theorists on a site like ATS can come up with some kind of scenario for predicting what's going to happen.
To say it very clearly: Earthquake swarms are not at all an indicator that something bigger is about to come. Too many times such swarms have happened without culminating in a big, destructive quake.

Despite of being a strong critic of USelessGS, I wouldn't go by the results from a European Agency (EMSC) for a USA quake.
Better to go with the locals.
As you see on the comparative images below, the quakes are not on top of each other (according to USGS).
Better still, for this series, follow the CaliTech list
