Dear Boundary Commission
I live in the Fleetwood district and will be in the Cloverdale district if your plan is approved. I think I was in the Cloverdale district or pretty close to it before the Fleetwood district was created. I probably consider myself more of a Fleetwood resident than a Cloverdale resident but that won't change with the district boundary. When I vote I'm thinking more about who I want as premier versus who becomes my MLA and I can vote for the party I want whether I'm in Cloverdale or Fleetwood.
I see a small number of people trying to push the Commission to redraw Fleetwood boundaries and maintain the current boundaries. You can’t have both a new riding and same boundaries of each electoral district.
I respect your decision because I believe that the Commission made every effort to “maintain communities of interest to the extent possible.”
