Cliff Barackman was kind enough to provide the following information to me in a personal communication on March 8th, 2022:
"That "Kokanee" cast is from Bluff Creek in 1958. Bob Titmus cast it and the original resides in the Willow Creek Museum. It's probably referred to as the Kokanee cast because that's the one that Rene Dahinden was photographed with for the Kokanee Beer advertising campaign."
Kokanee started life in the 1960s and initially, its sale was restricted to the residents of the interior of British Columbia due to BC liquor laws. Later it was marketed with the slogan, "Brewed right in the Kootenays". After Labatt bought the Columbia Brewery in 1974, they hired the advertising agency WestCan later to be known as Scali McCabe Sloves whose Vancouver office produced a number of humorous radio and then international award-winning TV campaigns introducing "The Sasquatch", including, for instance, (and still under the name WestCan at the time) two IBA's for TV. Two International Broadcast Awards both introduced the legendary Sasquatch trademark and this success in TV then took the brand to market domination and peak with a 30% plus brand share in 1986. These Sasquatch ads also were featured on the NBC "Tonight Show" as samples of the "World's Best". Other later efforts included a mock documentary showing Kokanee bottles migrating up a stream like salmon. These helped the brand become the market leader with a share of 17% in 1992. The Sasquatch 25 years later still a critical trademark for this effective branding.
