Disappointed by decision

Bill Barisoff wins for now. He has helped kill off the South Okanagan-Similkameen National Park proposal.

A national park here would have protected more species at risk, more endangered habitat types and encompass a greater diversity of ecosystems than any national park in Canada. This is a travesty.

The Christy Clark government is desperate to hang on to what voters they have left and will sacrifice the environment to stay in power. Goodbye Mr. Barisoff, we won’t miss you in government. Good riddance to the Liberals because they wont be around after the next election, and the South Okanagan-Simikameen better be a national park when the NDP are the government.
