The Comox Valley — known as the baby boomer capital of Canada, according to the latest census — is highlighted in a new CBC documentary dubbed The Boomer Revolution.
The film examines the largest demographic in Canadian history — baby boomers aged 48 to 67 — that comprises 30 per cent of Canada’s population. This age range has more wealth than any previous generation and controls two-thirds of all consumer spending, a news release states.
The documentary includes interviews with Crown Isle management and Comox architect Tom Dishlevoy. Both share ideas about housing options and how to better accommodate boomers in terms of single-level, detached homes and condominiums.
The film premieres Feb. 28 at 9 p.m. Pacific Time on CBC’s Doc Zone. Watch the trailer at http://youtu.be/asqrZJ_ZQ-4.
