  • At 10 percent of Canada's land surface, BC's landmass is immense, containing a large stretch of temperate rain forest along its Pacific coast. Some of the wettest places in North America are within the province—earning BC the nickname the "wet coast." For the past decade, the province, including the rainforest, has been affected by the mild winters and drought-like conditions, which culminate in uncharacteristically long lasting fire seasons. This year has been the driest since 1893, when records started, which has lead to more and longer lasting wildfires. Experts are calling the province as a whole the canary in the coal mine. During the peak wildfire season, hundreds of new fires were being reported every day, and the province struggled to get both the human and financial resources to keep up. VICE heads to Oliver in the BC's interior to embed with fire crews and Boulder Creek in the coastal BC to look at how the wildfires have affected the fragile BC ecosystem—everything from air quality to the salmon migration have been touched. We talk to firefighters on the ground and in the air, trek through charred forests with environmental scientists, and discuss connections to the climate change with BC's climate experts and hear from activist David Suzuki who tells us "we don't even know enough to know if it's too late."

    I live in BC, we were affected. I saw it first hand. Thanks for putting us in the limelight!

    The dislikes must be from people who don't live in BC... Although with California's drought I'm not sure how Americans can still deny climate change. I suppose at the moment the current ratio is saying that about 2/3 people who rated this video are morons... Sounds about right.

    We are still burning as we speak. 2018 has been our worst year yet.

    It's not because of global warming. It's because of mismanagement of wildland areas! (Don't think I don't believe climate change is real, but THIS, is NOT a direct result of warmer temps! I'm a wildland firefighter and I see exactly what is happening, you can blame it on your local land management!) Ever think that maybe we should just let nature do its job? Let fires burn, they are natural. If you keep putting them out year after year, or don't do large scale controlled burns, this WILL happen. The fuel builds up instead of burns away.... Before we humans tried to control the land, mother nature used wildfires to clean out waste, fertilize the earth, and start new ecosystems in the wake of the destructive fires. THEY ARE A NATURAL OCCURRENCE IN NATURE. Quit complaining that you're "burning" and just let mother nature take its course. (EXACTLY! The woman at

    People who don't believe in climate change are idiots they look at the evidence with their hands over their eyes.

    That's part of the reason why natives burned forests every ten years or so. That and to remove the canopy in order to allow for smaller plants like berry bushes to grow. We're fighting fires but we shouldn't. In , fact, we should burn forests on purpose. That would make subsequent fires less destructive. The more you fight it, the harder it gets to fight it, because every year you're saving more fuel for next year's fire to burn. Forest fires are natural, and good for the forests.

    Justin Trudeau got one thing right: David Suzuki does talk a load of sanctimonious crap.

    Funny how the native Canadian was the only one to bring up the fact the forest needs to be burned. Suzuki, nice guy but his judgment is clouded by the beauty of nature. The bc forests need these fires and that's the way nature works. The more they keep these fires out the more dangerous they will become. As for climate change, why does everyone think we're the main cause? Funny how other planets are being affected by the sun in the same way earth is. It's the sun heating the earth!

    I'm just throwing this out there but humans aren't all to blame for climate change, the earth goes through cycles like this. Just look at the end of the ice age, all the ice melted because the earth got warmer. And obviously we didn't have any carbon emissions back then.

    Living in BC, this really shocked us this year, and we had so many cutbacks from the Harper government that we were not prepared for this

    I'm glad this got covered. The fires were so bad this year, and some of the employees were fighting the fires that were happening around there homes. Very sad.
