    Population alone is Not a good way to determine electoral district boundaries. More consideration needs to be given to contiguous areas as it is ridiculous to split the District of West Vancouver in the middle and to put some of it in the Sea To Sky area - absolutely mind-boggling stupid of the commission to do this. One vote by a welfare recipient in Vancouver counts as as much as the vote of a farmer or trades entrepreneur in northern B.C. with a lot at stake and a lot to contribute which again is social engineering at its worst. A constituency in Vancouver should have four or five times the population as one in northern B.C. or one in the interior where forestry and mining is so very important. Victoria with its heavy civil service preponderance is like giving a thief the keys to the vault so it should have ten times the population of a coastal constituency. RR
