The resort of Kirkwood, B.S. in British Columbia, has announced plans to rename its resorts after a B.c. legend who died in the 1980s.
The resort has been named after a man named Arthur “B.J.”
Johnson, who played in a band called The Eagles.
The name was chosen after the group released a record called “The Eagle Song” in the early 1980s and played at the Kirkwood Ski Resort in B.A.B. in 1986.
Johnson’s song is featured on the B.F.M. album “I Love You” and was originally a hit in B.,S.T.E.M., a reggae band, and was recorded by the group.
It was featured on a song called “One Love,” by the Black Eyed Peas.
The band said Johnson was one of the best-known reggae musicians of the 1980-90s.
“We were very excited to be able to name the resort after him,” said Keith Koehler, the president and CEO of Kirkland-based Mountain West Outfitters.
Koehlers said he and his family were aware of the news and were working with the city and other city agencies to change the name of the resort.
“I am a bit surprised that the city would decide to name something that is about so much history and so much heritage and so many things that are in the region, that was just something that really resonated with us,” he said.
The city is also seeking to rename other Kirkwood resorts.
The town is proposing the names “Kirkwood,” “The Meadows,” “Bourbontown” and “Sierra.”
“We think the new names are a great addition to the community,” Koehners said.
“It will be an exciting time for our town, and for us as well.”
