Bigfoot Helps ‘Save BC Parks’

Bigfoot joins BCGEU’s ‘Save BC Parks’ campaign

VANCOUVER, June 28, 2012 /CNW/ – The B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union has enlisted the help of Bigfoot to kick off their summer campaign to increase funding to B.C.’s parks system.

Bigfoot and Ranger Dave star as characters in an online video – part of an internet and print-based campaign that highlights the impact of B.C. parks cuts and urges people to ask the B.C. government to restore parks funding.

The campaign focuses on B.C. park rangers as an endangered species, with only 10 full-time rangers left to patrol 1000 parks and protected areas, covering more than 32 million acres province-wide.

Q: How many full-time park rangers do you think there are to serve the 1000 parks and protected areas – more than 32 million acres of land? A: 10 only.

Since 2001, the BC government has cut the number of full-time park rangers by 62 per cent. The number of full-time-equivalent seasonal park ranger positions has seen a 60 per cent cut. A $10 million cut to parks budgets has meant vehicles, gasoline and travel budgets to patrol our parks have been dramatically reduced.

Help send a message to the BC government, to restore parks funding to 2000 levels. Visit for more information.

The sasquatch in the Ranger Danger video isn’t just another pretty face. He is a multi-talented simian with a unique viewpoint on modern technology and culture. Watch these short outtakes from the video shoot.

    British Columbia has suffered over the last decade at the hands of a government that puts the dollar first and people and amenities way down on their to do list. First, they took Ogopogo off the protected list with no public announcement made and then they began to deplete our provincial parks.
    Lip service has been paid to the environment and all our outdoor amenities. Just recently Thomas Steenburg, myself and others were at the site of a previous sasquatch sighting in a provincial park close to Hope, BC. In all the time we were there we did not see one ranger. A truly sad state of affairs. All British Columbians should contact their Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) and voice their displeasure at the way this government conducts itself in regard to our great outdoors.
    By the way . . . The BCGEU – who are trying to save our Rangers- would help thier cause by not referring to our resident bipedal hairy hominid as “Bigfoot”. That is an American phenomenon. In these parts – as the Kokanee Ranger knows – the cryptid is known as SASQUATCH.

    A possible antidote to this severe shortage:

    Confirming the sasquatch.

    Don’t “management headaches” take MORE PEOPLE to manage?

    Just a thought.
