My family ran a Resort named Brandywine Falls in the 1960's, which was just south of Whistler. They sold it as a Park in the early 70's. There were numerous sightings in the area at that time, quite a few documented, but other sightings that were not. I did alot of hiking and exploring off in the woods when I was younger. Moved to the Cowichan Valley in the 70's, then up to Northern Vancouver Island where I now live. My son had a encounter in the late 90's up in this region, and it coincided with another sighting not far away. I did meet John Bindernagel, and later went with a film crew from LIFE TV when the were filming an episode of "Magnificent Obssesions". It was incredible to be a part of that, and go to one of the remote islands where an encounter had occured. Late, I helped organize a meeting at out locla Community Hall where John did a presentation, and it was filmed for the sequence. Great comminity turn out!! I still have a copy of the episode. Am still curious if there are more sightings on Northern Vancouver Island, and am out exploring.
