    WCB protester high atop Richmond Hill - Hope Standard, BC, Canada
    Willi Chapman sits atop his aluminum platform 60 feet at the top of a now branch-bare tree; it is 200 feet to the bottom of the cliff below. From below his family ropes him up small quantities of water, soup, an apple, cranberries to keep up his strength.

    The quiet man knows that if anything should happen there is not much chance of surviving the fall.

    He is protesting his treatment by Workers Compensation Board, 37 years after his logging accident - at his age he knows he does not have too much more time on this earth to fight.
