    I am writing to tell you that moving Cumberland out of the Comox Valley Electoral District into an electoral district that includes Port Alberni, Tofino and Ucluelet is an extremely bad idea. Cumberland is an integral part of the Comox Valley, and the closest city to Cumberland is Courtenay. Courtenay is where we want our MLA to be, not in some place that we have to drive an hour or more to get to. I would say that most people in Cumberland have very few connections to Port Alberni, Tofino and Ucluelet, but are very strongly connected to the Comox Valley and should stay part of the Comox Valley Electoral District. Take a look at a map, please, and you will see that Cumberland is part of the Comox Valley. It is not part of some area beginning at Port Alberni, a place which most of us never even go.
