Leadership lacking on park

Government should support a national park that would increase tourism for the area

I am confused, I thought the Minister of the Environment was supposed to look after the environment. I can’t understand what is going on with the national park issue in the South Okanagan?

Why isn’t the B.C. government supporting this? We have some of the rarest species here. They should be protected. Besides, national parks will bring tourists to our area.

Tourists mean our hotels will have higher occupancy rates, wineries will be visited by more people, restaurants will have more customers and other businesses will benefit, too. I thought this government was interested in jobs?

We also are wondering what the government is doing about the HST. Polls show we want a national park. Where is the leadership from this government in the Okanagan?
