Today, the Spirit Bear Youth Coalition sent out a news release urging Premier Gordon Campbell to "intervene immediately to protect the 80,000 hectare Green wilderness" - which the group considers part of the white bear's "core habitat." And what will happin if the government's doesn't stop logging in the Green? Well, as some of our astute readers may already know, the coalition is presently working with Hh ladh Productions and Melwood Pictures to produce The Spirit Bear Movie - a computer animated film slated for worldwide release in spring 2008. But the producers are prepared to release that movie a year later - coinciding with the next election - if the bear's habitat remains under threat.
