The Threatened Ancient Forests of Vancouver Island the BC's South Coast

DVD - 2009
Rate this:
This is a powerful new documentary by Jeremy Williams about the campaign to protect the lost old-growth forests and forestry jobs on Vancouver Island and BC's south coast. The fight for ancient forests exploded in 1993 on Vancouver Island in Clayoquot Sound, where thousands of people joined efforts to save the old-growth rainforests, including Dr. David Suzuki and Australian rock band Midnight Oil. In recent years a resurgence in environmental concerns, partly triggered by Al Gore's climate change documentary "An inconvenient truth", has also been accompanied by a massive expansion of the ancient forest movement again on Vancouver Island, as thousands of environmentalists and forestry workers join together in solidarity at mass rallies in Victoria organized by the Wilderness Committee.
