“BC Perseverance” highlighted in YouTube video
In 2017, the Elephant Hill wildfire surrounded Loon Lake: the resort, its owners, campsites, residences, and visitors. The Village of Clinton was also affected by the wildfire, but since then the region has once again begun to flourish.
A new YouTube video funded by NDIT in partnership with the Thompson Nicola Film Commission seeks to highlight the perseverance of the small community of Loon Lake in the aftermath of the Elephant Hill wildfire, while also showcasing the resilience of the entire province. The video was filmed by Joy Factory and premiered on YouTube on Feb. 20.
