I absolutely agree with Chamber president Stephen Yeung's recent letter to the editor in the Hope Standard. I do not support the idea of relocating the district of Hope in the the expanse of the Fraser Nicola riding.
I do not agree that doing so is best for us in Hope and challenge the commission to demonstrate how Hope would derive a greater economic benefit or better government representation from such an arrangement.
I think the people of Hope see them selves as the gateway to the Fraser Valley. Our community ties are far stronger with our friends to the west that over the mountains to the east.
Please reconsider your proposal for the District of Hope and leave us alone. We are very content being associated with Chilliwack and the Fraser Valley.
