Cloverdale Reporter: B.C. man’s polite encounter with bears praised for being ‘so Canadian’
Jordan Cote calmly asks 4-legged family to leave because he has to get to work [video]

“Hope you enjoyed my yard, have a good day!” A Vancouver Island man’s encounter with bears in his backyard is getting plenty of attention online for being so politely Canadian. In the clip posted on social media Friday, Sooke resident Jordan Cote can be heard asking the four-legged family to leave, because he has to get to work. The equally-polite mother bear turns and walks with her cubs into the bushes on the left corner of his property. Bear encounters in B.C. are especially common in August and September, but can occur anytime between May and October. They can be active all year in mild areas like Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. When one does encounter a bear in a residential area, the Ministry of Environment wisely urges to remain calm and keep away from the bear.
