LETTERS: National park not necessary

We do not need a Vancouver-West End MLA telling us how we feel about a national park.

We do not need a Vancouver-West End MLA telling us how we feel about a national park.

If you like the idea so much put it in your backyard and leave us alone. Linda Larson is not the only one against it, she is only responding to the feelings of her constituents like any good MLA should do.

This park will not bring in millions of new dollars, nor will it create new jobs. It will cost millions of dollars and create a few new office jobs for Parks Canada.

Taking polls from people not affected does not mean a thing. Our agriculture land is disappearing at an alarming rate as are the jobs. Food is more important than tourism as are the jobs that get the food to your table.

Oliver council, I hope you will support Linda Larson in all of her efforts to protect this area the correct way without a park.
