Tourism takes a hit in Osoyoos

It is a town that relies heavily on tourism dollars but the fire burning near Osoyoos is taking a toll on the local economy. Hundreds of tourists have already been forced out of town by the Nk’Mip Creek wildfire and dozens more have been placed on an alert and told to be ready to flee if needed. And while the town is still welcoming tourists, the mayor is urging would-be-visitors to do their homework before travelling to the vacation destination.
