Whistler Old Growth Trees
Whistler, Canada, host of the 2010 Winter Olympics, is about to start cutting its old growth forests. This, despite the fact that Whistler likes to present itself as a model of sustainable practices.
Locals have tried to intervene and stop the cutting of 300-year-old trees, but the politicians, bureaucrats and business community aren't listening.
So we've decided to help motivate them. Hence, this video.
