From generation to generation, traditions, knowledge and responsibilities are passed from father to son, mother to daughter, mentor to prodigy, to continue to hope and strive to build a better earth, a better humanity. Past, present and future in Vancouver are inextricably tied to its oceans and mountains. They are tied to its valleys, rivers and lakes, to its fresh and salt waters, to its port and vessels, to its communities and its reach out to the world. From Capilano River to Edgemont Village and beyond… on his dragon-fish-bird-mammal the Life Protector moves keeping vigil. Armed with the powers of all four earth elements, earth and air, fire and water, the duo’s posed to roam from the highest peak, to the deepest ravine protecting the environment for the future generations.
