An organization opposed to the creation of a national park reserve in the south Okanagan says it wants a “meaningful, unbiased and factual analysis” of the proposed park’s impact on the area.
The Grassland Park Review Coalition is adamantly opposed to a national park.
In a news release, the coalition says it has a mandate “to balance the hype and identify the true impacts of establishing a National Park Reserve in the South Okanagan-Lower Similkameen Valleys”.
The group is concerned a park would negatively impact agriculture, ranching and outdoor recreation including hunting.
“We look forward to a respectful, unbiased, professional and factual process as indicated by both levels of government,” states the release.
