    My name is Pavan Samra.

    I want to thank the Commission for this opportunity to present my ideas on electoral boundaries. I have lived in Merritt since 1994.

    The changes recommended in your Preliminary Report also fixes the problem that was introduced in 2009 when different Aboriginal communities of the same N’laka pamux Nation were split into two districts when Hope and the Fraser Canyon were separated from Yale-Lillooet. Now, all 20 Indian Bands of the N”laka pamux Tribe situated in Canada are, once again, housed within Fraser-Nicola. The Aboriginal people in the Fraser Canyon and in the Reserves surrounding Hope were not consulted in 2009 when those changes were made to take Hope out of Yale-Lillooet.

    Now that Hope and Yale have, once again, been re-united with Fraser-Nicola it is important that the constituency ought to be called by its historic name of “Yale-Lillooet”.

    Pavan Samra,
    Merritt BC
