Petition to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change
We do not want areas of the Southern Okanagan turned into a national park reserve;
This park would offer no additional protection to the land;
This park would not be financially viable as parks are running at a deficit;
This park would take the use of the lands away from the locals in the way they currently use them and would only open them to resource exploitation by special interest groups;
Ranchers, hunters, recreational users and far more people will lose their rights to enjoy crown land in this area; and
We voted this down previously and it should not be pushed forward without the consent of those who will be most affected by it.
We, the undersigned, residents of the Southern Okanagan, call upon the Minister of Environment and Climate Change to ask that the proposal of forming a National Park Reserve in the Southern Okanagan be ended and that there be a referendum and vote on this subject once and for all.
