    Ronnie Nicolasora, New Westminster

    I am writing in support of maintaining the current boundaries of the New Westminster constituency.

    I am a proud resident of New Westminster living in Queensborough and feel strongly that our community is represented well within the New Westminster constituency.

    Queensborough residents attend religious services in New Westminster, send their children to New Westminster Secondary, conduct their shopping in the city and look forward to taking part in community celebrations and festivals within New Westminster. We identify New Westminster as our community and many of us rarely even enter the City of Richmond.

    When the federal Electoral Boundary Commission considered removing Queensbourgh from the rest of New Westminster in their review, the community uproar caused them to amend the proposed changes and keep the city together.

    New Westminster residents are proud to have a common provincial constituency and to have our elected provincial representative represent the community with one voice.

    I hope the provincial review will recognize the unique importance of keeping our community together in the electoral boundary review process.
