SR: Scotchman Peaks Gains Altitude

The Editorial Board of the Spokesman-Review editorialized Saturday:

The Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness is gaining altitude. After almost a decade of advocacy for preservation of the 88,000 acres straddling the Idaho/Montana border, the group is ready to take its case to Washington, D.C. And its representatives will go with the unanimous endorsement of as conservative a governing body as one can find in North Idaho: the Bonner County commissioners. The Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce has given its blessing as well. Every member of the board of directors signed the resolution. Full editorial here.

Question: Is there anyone out there who opposes the preservation of Scotchman Peaks?
