Vancouver was NOT protected like the Great Bear Rainforest

Here's what it looked like near the corner of Hastings and Seymour way back in 1886, as they were clearing the area so that it could become city blocks (and now SFU's downtown campus).

Here's what it looked like near the corner of Hastings and Seymour way back in 1886, as they were clearing the area so that it could become city blocks (and now SFU's downtown campus). Don't miss this gallery of ten photos from the Great Bear Rainforest that we published earlier today to celebrate the announcement that 85% of it will be protected under a landmark agreement. Just fantastic news.
