Pro park supporters need to stand up and be counted

To many of us, the national park question is not dead, but dormant because the pro park citizens, are not speaking out in support of it.

To the Editor:

The Village of Keremeos is doing a survey of residents’ opinions on a number of matters that affect us all.

I do not find any of the questions to be based on arrogance.

Please fill out the survey.

To many of us, the national park question is not dead, but lies dormant because the pro park citizens, for whatever reason, are not speaking out in support of it. My question is: If the park does not become a reality, what happens to the habitat in the South Okanagan Similkameen Grasslands in 20 years time? Will it be broken up into residential areas and small hobby farms by developers?

The Wilderness Committee  calls the area “B.C.’s arid paradise,” and is home to meadowlarks, bluebirds, badgers, grasshopper sparrows, canyon wrens, mountain goats, etc.

This landscape is one of the most endangered in Canada.

I am one of the pro park supporters who has been negligent about speaking out, but now feel supporters must stand up and be counted.
