    Our Living Legacy: The Threatened Ancient Forests of Vancouver Island and BC's South Coast https://www.facebook.com/ourlivinglegacyfilm This powerful documentary is about the campaign to protect the last 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 organized by the Wilderness Committee in Victoria. See spectacular images of the enormous ancient trees, giant stumps and clearcuts, and the export of raw logs to foreign mills. Interviews/ speeches by Arnold Bercov (Pulp, Paper, and Woodworkers of Canada union), Gisele Martin (Tla-ook Cultural Adventures, Nuu-chah-nulth Nation), Eli Enns (Tla-o-qui-aht Tribal Park Coordinator, Nuu-chah-nulth Nation), Ken James (Youbou TimberLess Society), Valerie Langer (Friends of Clayoquot Sound), Jane Sterk (BC Green Party leader), Bob Simpson (Opposition Forestry Critic), Carole James (NDP BC Leader), and Ken Wu (Wilderness Committee). Also includes a little-known quote by Barack Obama.

      A mere one-tenth of the original ancient forests exist in the Pacific Northwest. If the current rate of logging continues, within the next thirty-five years most of the remaining old growth forests will be gone... forever. The Wilderness Society is fighting to save the ancient forests through litigation, research, policy analysis and public education.
