While traveling in the west Kootenay mountains on a snowboard trip, we met John Niebel (Yukon John). He was doing a bit of work at the hotel we were staying at and over a couple of days we got to know him better. His story was interesting to me. This is a short Excerpt from the up and coming film "People".
