HISTORY CHANNEL CANADA’S “SALVAGE KINGS” SECOND SEASON HAS A PETROLIA CONNECTION
Petrolia – “Salvage Kings is an exciting series featuring the demolition and salvage teams at Priestly Demolition Inc. in the fast-paced, adrenaline-pumping job of tearing down buildings and racing against the clock to pull out anything valuable left behind.
This year, the salvage team at family-owned Priestly Demolition Inc. returns for a second season, racing against the clock to recover historic treasures from buildings that have reached the end of their lives in this explosive series.
It’s a high-octane mission for Head of Salvage Ted Finch, his right-hand man Justin Fortin, and rookie Julien Savage, as they hunt for as many artifacts in ill-fated buildings as they can find – all before President Ryan Priestly and his demolition crew smash down the walls around them. Working in often dangerous conditions, the team hunts for
any items they can sell, bringing life to the phrase “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”
From century-old safes to classic neon signage, to collectible toys, to vintage bowling pinsetters, to historic lighting fixtures, to beautiful old-growth wood beams, or a 1951 Nash Canadian statesman Airflyte – the salvage team is always amazed at the hidden gems they find, as well as the stories behind them that would have otherwise been lost to the past.
It’s a risky business, but the Priestly team brings skill, fun and heart to every job they do. With an equal combination of history, humour and discovery, there’s no telling what the Salvage Kings will find, nor where their incredible discoveries will end up.” Excerpt from the Series Synapsis.
“…The new season airs beginning, Monday, April 19, 2021 on History Channel Canada, and within the first few episode’s residents will see first-hand what we are so excited about.” Said Richard Poore, Chairperson, Petrolia Discovery Inc.
