ABOUT THE FILM

Breathtaking views of the magnificent Purcell Mountains of B.C. make it clear why the Jumbo Glacier Resort investors have been trying for over twenty years to build a huge, luxurious year-round ski resort smack in the middle of grizzly bear habitat on land sacred to the Ktunaxa Nation. But will economic benefits outweigh environmental and spiritual concern? Jumbo Wild provides a detailed history of the plans and the reasons for protest, made pressing by a twist: the provincial government has created the Jumbo Glacier Mountain Resort Municipality, “the first municipality in Canada to be incorporated with no residents, no infrastructure, no budget, and no reliable access.“
