The Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce is absolutely spot on when it suggests that the proposed changes to the electoral boundaries will have a detrimental effect on the residents of the area. Metro Abbotsford is a strong community with both the Abbotsford International Airport and the University of the Fraser Valley located here. The proposed changes do not take into account the distinctions between the communities they are proposing to link. The Abbotsford Aldergrove border, for example, makes a more natural division than the east west line of Highway #1. Change is often necessary, but it should make sense. The new boundaries seem to defy logic and the idea of good representation by our elected officials.
