    I strongly object to the Commission considering to amend the City of Vancouver's electoral boundaries with a result that any of the City will be allocated to a neighbouring municipality. This may have happened in other cities in the past but I can see no reasonable justification for considering it in Vancouver. Vancouver already has 11 contiguous constituencies within City boundaries so why consider pairing off part of the City with a neighbouring municipality and forcing two distinct communities into a constituency? Federal commissions have done this in the past and it was not well received by anyone. It may make population distributions look better it was an ill thought out idea that ultimately separated people within the community. This idea has been considered by Provincial Commissions in the past and wisely rejected.
