Storyline

Simon Jackson is an awkward 15-year-old who lives on a planet light years away from the "in" crowd-until a life changing moment. Attacked in the British Columbia wilderness, Simon is rescued by a rare white Kermode bear. When he learns these magnificent creatures are endangered, that only 400 are in existence in a small area of northern BC, Simon turns from shy, stuttering daydreamer to political activist. Mustering his courage, he takes on the powerful forest industry and the provincial government, eventually rallying everyone from Prince William to the Backstreet Boys. Simon ultimately secures the protection of 2500 square miles of Princess Royal Island-one of the largest land protection battles ever won-and is named one of Time Magazine's "Heroes for the Planet."

Amazing Man!!
26 May 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I cannot wait to see this movie. I know Simon Jackson personally and he is an amazing, AMAZING man! I remember when I first met Simon after receiving my scholarship from TD Canada Trust, he told us his story while we told him ours. Simon is a man whom you listen to when he speaks, he has this special thing about himself, I don't know what it is, but I know he has it. Simon is going to make it big, and he'll save his bear.

He's great, just great. He told us about THIS movie and he's very proud, I know it will be a 10/10!

If you're looking forward to seeing a movie in the US about the Spirit Bear, wait until 2008 because the movie industry is going to be taken aback by a "first ever" involving the Spirit Bear! :D
