B.C. Man To Live At Vancouver Airport For 80 Days

A Vancouver Island native has been chosen as the winner of a contest that will see him live at Vancouver International Airport for 80 days and 80 nights.

Jaeger Mah, 29, received more than 4,000 online votes in the Live@YVR contest — more than double those of his closest competitor.

Armed with a camera and editing equipment, Mah will spend 80 days uncovering stories and sharing his experiences of living at an airport full time — all without leaving its Sea Island home — live online.

“We were thrilled to see the level of public engagement that we did, with more than 8,000 votes cast for the five fabulous Live@YVR finalists,” said Rebecca Catley with the Vancouver Airport Authority.
