    As a long time delta resident, I am deeply concerned that the electoral commission could change delta's provincial representation to include Richmond and surrey.
    Please do not let this happen! We are a complete community with very diverse challenges from that of Richmond or surrey.
    Currently the provincial boundaries recognizes the demographic differences between delta south and north delta, but also recognizes that we are DELTA as a whole.
    For the sake of a few thousand people here or there, does it really matter? What really matters is that people feel represented.
    I can assure you that Ladner and tsawwassen residents will not feel represented by a Richmond MLA.
    Similarly, north delta residents will not feel represented by a surrey MLA.
    History has proven that combining delta south and Richmond east from a federal election perspective has not been successful. Why would we ever want to consider making the same mistake from a provincial perspective?
    Thank you for your consideration of keeping delta south it's own community.
    Best regards,
