Topic:Keep it Wild
Running Time:60 min.


The Jumbo Valley, located deep in the wilds of British Columbia, has long been revered for its spiritual significance and beauty. The Valley is a crucial international wildlife corridor, one of only two remaining areas in North America where Grizzly bears can freely roam between Canada and the US. To the Ktunaxa Nation, it is known as Qata'muk, home of the Grizzly bear spirit. For decades, First Nations, conservationists, backcountry skiers and snowboarders have fought a proposed large-scale ski resort. After 24 years of opposition, what more will it take to keep Jumbo wild for good?
