Fog Zone | Climate-specific toponym | The coastline of Vancouver Island from Owen Point to Port Hardy. This area – roughly 90% of the entire west coast of the island (plus 2km inland) – is usually exempt from provincial fire bans on account of its marine climate, which is to say that it is less susceptible to suddenly bursting into flames. It is where Vancouverites must go when they want a campfire in summer.
Usage: “We canceled our campground reservation at Alice Lake as soon as they announced the fire ban. Now we’re heading to Tofino instead, where we can take advantage of the Fog Zone…”
