Premier John Horgan shared his thoughts on a National Park in the South Okanagan.
“My view is, the community is behind this and we should be moving as quickly as possible to open up potential opportunities for more economic activity in the region,” he said in OK Falls on Wednesday.
“We’ve been aware of this for sometime. I know I support the community’s drive to have a national park. There’s been extensive consultation trying to protect and preserve ranching values, ensuring that tourism values are maintained. The community is very close to final decisions on that.”
He said the province will back the community in what decision is made.
