    There is not enough population in the Alberni Valley and Long Beach area to justify one constituency, therefore, you must continue to look to the east coast of Vancouver Island for population to add. It makes sense to follow Highway 4 from Port Alberni into Coombs and Errington – these are most logical communities to include, which has been the case for the last two boundary processes. Looking beyond, the issue for this region is growth in the Comox Valley. You would not want to do what was done in the federal boundary review and split Courtenay and Comox. Keep those communities together, but the natural area to move from Comox Valley are the areas in its southern region that border Alberni-Pacific Rim. Thus, you would add additional areas from the east coast into the current Alberni-Pacific Rim area.
