Dear Commission Members:
I believe the Commission has done a good job maintaining fair representation for the City of Surrey with their proposed changes to the electoral districts. This is evident by how well the Commissioners have kept core communities together. Surrey is diverse and continues to be one of British Columbia’s fastest growing cities. And for this reason, I am pleased with the addition of another electoral district in Surrey. With another district, the citizens of Surrey will be fairly represented in Victoria. I think the Commission’s report is well done and based on objectivity. Therefore, I fully support the Commission decision for adding another electoral district and for making meaningful changes to the boundaries of all districts to rebalance the population, including my electoral district Newton.
