I have 3 suggestions:
1. No increase the number of seats from 85 is required for democracy (with first past the post; with STV or MMP, democracy might be served by having more seats but many fewer geographical ridings)
2. The rate of growth should not be taken into account, and should certainly not be used to justify lower than average numbers of voters in denser areas. BC doesn't need phantom voters.
3. NO ridings in the denser areas should have fewer than the average pop/riding.
These criteria imply rethinking the south end of the Island where there are 4 seats recommended for less than average size (including my own) as well as the lower mainland.
