    This will be great little comedy with Claire as the main character - she has a wonderful outgoing personality and works so well with others in a production. Great showcasing for Vancouver's Stanley Park and it's lovely skyline

    I'm intrigued as Stanley Park offers many hidden gems. The creative minds behind Ranger Bay polish up those gems with witty humor for all to enjoy. The trailer and clips offer a pleasant teaser into what is next to come.

    There's another park ranger comedy out of New Brunswick; and I like both of your ideas. The starting a Canucks riot is amusing; and this has a real potential for a 42-minute dramedy and at least remain a 22-minute comedy. Anything that shows off Canada's great wilderness is an asset to me; and BC has a unique wilderness to exploit and present to the rest of Canada and it seems like you've assembled a veteran/noobie cast.

    Ideally, I would love to see a big-city Vancouver cadet being flung a little further into the Canadian hinterland - like somewhere near Fort Mac or northern Manitoba, but like I said it would be a shame to avoid the beauty of BC's unique landscape. I hope more people catch this and it has great potential!
