Group backs Scotchman designation

The Idaho Forest Group based in Coeur d'Alene has joined local governments in calling on Congress to designate the Scotchman Peaks area as wilderness. The roadless area includes 80,000 acres north and east of Lake Pend Oreille straddling the Montana-Idaho border and including the Kootenai and Idaho Panhandle national forests. “It’s time to get it designated,” said Bob Boeh, Idaho Forest Group vice president of government affairs and strategic outreach, who met with the Friends of the Scotchman Peaks Wilderness on Monday in Sandpoint/Rich Landers, Outdoors.

Question: Do you agree that "it's time to get (Scotchman Peaks area) designated"?
