Please take note, that my self and my husband, Larry Pollard strongly appose the proposed changes in the new Electoral riding for the Comox Valley. Such proposal would move Cumberland and other smaller areas out of the current district to be part of the Port Alberni and area riding.......
We foresee a lot of problems in the future....one being having access to our MLA. If the MLA`s office is situated in Cumberland, Port Alberni voters would complain and visa-versa. The result would be the loss of votes. We do not plan to vote for an MLA from Port Alberni...some one we do not know. It would also be a certainty with the situation in reverse.
Cumberland is part of the Comox Valley and should remain so. Due to the fact that we have a small village, it can be difficult getting things done.....we foresee the problem increasing if we were to lose our electoral standing in the community.
Please add this note to the many you will be receiving and please re-think this plan.
