2017 was the worst wildfire season in British Columbia history. As early as July 7, the province declared a state of emergency as upwards of 200-plus separate fires raged across the province. More than 45,000 people were forced to leave their homes and plumes of black smoke could be seen as far away as Victoria and Calgary. In British Columbia Burning, Bethany Lindsay uses words and images to follow firefighters, evacuees and those who stayed to save their communities in what was B.C.’s worst wildfire season ever.
