Wilderburb in this book is defined as the North Shore and the Inlet and those parts of Vancouver where you will find wildlife like beavers, otters, great blue herons, bears and eagles sharing space comfortably with the human beings who live there as well.

As the saying goes “those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it.” In 2017 over 1,300 fires smoked approximately 65,000 British Columbians out of their homes
