The Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce  is looking ahead to a rail trail from Coldstream to Kelowna.

On Saturday, Lake Country residents voted to borrow funds to purchase the rail corridor in that municipality.

“Our chamber has long supported this initiative because of the regional economic development opportunities that it presents,” said Jaron Chasca, GVCC president.

“We appreciate that the citizens in Lake Country wanted a say in how their local representatives financed the acquisition but we are happy they will be moving forward.”
