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.
