There has been alot of talk about a possible site in the Okanagan for a provincial correctional facility. Now the Columbia Shuswap Regional District is expressing an interest. Directors have agreed to send a letter to Victoria asking that two Shuswap sites, Malakwa and Falkland-SalmonValley, be considered in the selection process. ``It would be a tremendous opportunity for employment for any area that was to receive it,'' says Sicamous-Malakwa director Rhona Martin.
