Re: Ghost Town: Canadian Community Abandoned 30 Years Ago

I live here in BC and Kitsault is very remote and difficult to access. Everything there is frozen in time though; very eerie.

I just want to thank BagOfShit for ruining the natural decay and beauty of all the worlds abandoned places. Let nature ruin them and keep your graffiti to downtown ghettos where it belongs...

It was all built to house workers at a nearby mine. When the mineral they were mining tanked they stopped mining it, and the place became redundant.

There's a lot of places in Northern Canada that are built around a mine or resource in the middle of nowhere. Like literally, hundreds of miles from anything. With the oil boom there are working "camps" being built that can house thousands of people, some even have airstrips that can accommodate a full size passenger jet.
100 years from now, or a lot less, most of these will be abandoned as well.

In this particular case, this area is going through a tremendous resource boom right now. There is a huge amount of gas, oil and minerals in Northern BC, and until recently most of it was inaccessible and/or not feasable. I think the guy that bought this probably has a good idea, its just a matter of the timing and it depends on where the pipelines are routed.
