Mind you, if any sort of a serious portage is involved the weight and size of the Oru becomes extremely attractive.
Having packed my 47lb inflatable to Garibaldi a few times now, the Oru has some appeal. That's boat only, add everything else needed and it's pushing 70 lbs total, but I end up with a very nice craft I can roam the lake at will in, feeling safe away from shore in any conditions. Packrafts have their place for sure, but a lake as big, cold and magnificent as Garibaldi deserves more than a packraft. The Oru would be very suitable.
Murtle lake is worth checking, BTW, especially if you like fish for dinner.
