Cumberland should remain in the current electoral district because we serve the rest of the Comox Valley with our landfill. The Village is also in the same watershed as Courtenay; our hospital is in the existing electoral district and we are part of the Comox Strathcona Regional Hospital District.
Port Alberni and Cumberland are separated by a mountain range; it would be too far to travel to the MLA's office in Port Alberni.
Cumberland is part of the Comox Valley Regiobnal district and should be in the same electoral riding as Courtenay and Comox.
The proposal to move Cumberland to Port Alberni electoral district is misguided and should not take place.
