    One only has to look at the skyline of Richmond to know that the city is growing very rapidly. The number o new apartment buildings is substantial and the construction cranes keep rising. This is borne out by the population numbers and deviation in the average electorial district population numbers published by the Commission. Richmond Centre is 29% over the norm and Richmond East is 28% over and Richmond Steveston is almost 16% over. With these overages Richmond c an easily handle another provincial electoral riding. I have served the city as a city Councillor for 12 years, Mayor for 11 years and as an MLA for 4 years and can appreciate the workload on our constituency offices and MLAs with this increasing population base. We also have a very significent number of new Canadians living in Richmond and their need for assistance from our MLA offices to navigate services is high. Four ridings in Richmond would help represent our citizens better.
