    John MacDonald, Abbotsford

    I’m happy to submit my thoughts on the future of the electoral district in the Lower Mainland area.

    I have lived in Abbotsford for three years, and have been involved with many local organizations such as the Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce, Abbotsford Rotary Club, from these experiences I can strongly say that we are well served by the current electoral boundaries. Abbotsford is a diverse city with people of many different backgrounds, cultures, and ethnicities living together and the current boundaries respect the diverse makeup of Abbotsford.

    That is why I believe it would be unwise of this commission to reduce the number of seats Abbotsford currently has, and recommend you leave the boundaries as they are.
