I can’t believe our federal government is considering buying out cattle ranches in the South Okanagan to put them out of business for the sake of a national park.
These cattle ranches are contributing to the local and regional economy in a huge way and we all know there will be no cattle allowed in a national park.
A few years ago, my wife and I went through a national park on the David Thompson Highway and we paid a toll of $17.80 for the two of us and the car.
Will the government have a toll booth on the Richter Pass highway? Will we all be paying a toll to get in and out of Osoyoos?
The government does not have the millions of dollars necessary to create a national park.
It is time all levels of government start setting an example and stop spending money they do not have, especially for non-essentials like a national park. Please stop this insanity and forget about a national park.
