VIDEO: Fight to save local landmark going international

Shachi Kurl, A-Channel News Reporter, August 10, 2010

It's the best, worst-kept secret on Vancouver Island.

A 100-hectare forest wonderland: pristine, untouched and about a thousand years old.

But there are real and imminent fears this space may not be long for this world.

It is de facto owned by logging company Teal Jones.

The firm hasn't applied to the provincial government for a logging permit yet, but activists with the Ancient Forest Alliance claims the company is making plans to cut.

The alliance, local government, and tourism associations have been asking the BC government to protect this area, so far without success.

But is the fight to preserve a local landmark about to get international profile?

That's the plan according to cast of "The Buried Life," an MTV show about tying up life's loose ends, featuring four guys from Vancouver Island.

The show's producers are promising a flash-mob protest in Toronto on Friday, near another national landmark - the Canadian Hockey Hall of Fame.
