    I feel the riding of Kamloops-North Thompson represents a cohesive riding with similar economic drivers, community interests and a valley which works well together at the local, regional and provincial level. Suggesting that any portion of this riding be reallocated to a new boundary which would include the Cariboo is ridiculous. The Cariboo is a region to itself, with a traffic flow up Hwy 97, a different economic base and no interaction between communities at a local government level. Everything from sports, to education, to economic development and tourism, is situated with boundaries that reflect and encompass Kamloops and the North Thompson. I am most definitely NOT in favour of a boundary change for Kamloops-North Thompson and DO NOT feel that either the area of the Cariboo which is suggested as being in the same riding as the North Thompson Valley north of Little Fort, would benefit from this change, and in fact I feel that it would be detrimental to the existing relationships among manly levels of local government which are now very effective in serving the constituents of the North Thompson Valley. Thank you for your time.
