After hearing from my friend and now seeing a very concerning letter to the editor in our local paper, I think it is important for me to also state that I do NOT agree with the proposal by the boundaries commission to tamper with the provincial riding of Chilliwack & Hope.
To suggest the people be better represented or economy of Hope will be dramatically improved by tying in with those people in an equally economically challenged community like Merritt is ridiculous. The only real connection we have with those in Merritt is a 120km long highway that is known for fatalities and frequent closures during the winter.
To let a handful of people who live outside of Hope attempt to determine our towns future is a disservice and should be ignored.
Do not change the Chilliwack and Hope riding. Leave it as it is.
