KELOWNA, B.C. – Premier Christy Clark and Global Okanagan news anchor Rick Webber discussed issues affecting local residents Tuesday evening, including LNG projects, education, health care and a push for a national park in the south Okanagan.
Clark says despite the provincial government’s previous rejection of a national park near Oliver and Osoyoos, the Liberals are working on creating new recommendations based on community interest.
The Premier also says an education fund set up to save some B.C. schools from closing in small communities will not be short lived.
Clark says the money to help communities like Osoyoos keep their high school will always be there, not just for two years as had been suggested by districts which applied for the funding.
