"This is clearly a process that's trying to do an end run around what is good for Utah," said Rep. Rob Bishop about the Outdoor Industry Association's proposal to protect 1.4 million acres surrounding Canyonlands National Park by making them a national monument ("Proposal for Canyonlands monument draws fire," Tribune, Nov. 13).

Wait a minute. Isn't that exactly what the same representative from Utah is trying to do with his SkiLink proposal? Bishop is proposing an end run around local input by having Congress sell a narrow strip of 30 acres of U.S. Forest Service land to a Canadian company for a gondola.

Seems like Bishop is using a double standard.
