“The Ballad of Jim Cordy,” Canadian Forest Industries Films (Montreal: Canadian Pulp and Paper Association: 1976), 4.
“Ninety-year-old Jim Cordy, the last of a group of settlers who were unsuccessful in establishing farms at the northern end of Vancouver Island early in the century, tells of the life and work of his fellow pioneers. The film shows that, while the region was found to be unsuccessful for market gardening in years past, the land has proven to be excellent for timber production, the basis for attractive permanent communities and excellent recreational activities. Available in British Columbia and Alberta.”
