The Okanagan Valley

Formerly one of Canada’s prime fruit-growing areas, famous for its good weather, Social Credit premiers and the Ogopogo, which is a tourism industry invention from the 1950s that about four people in the valley still believe in. The Okanagan is rapidly filling to capacity with trailer parks for the elderly, and it is a prime terminus point for sunshine-questers from all across the northern Prairies and the B.C. north, who believe they’ve discovered Arizona.
