To the Electoral Boundaries Commission:
I would like to thank the Commission for the work they have done on the electoral boundaries in Surrey. I believe that the Commission captured the “town centres” of Surrey in their original draft of boundaries. Residents of Surrey identify with these town centres and that fosters community engagement.
The only change to the original draft that I would suggest would be in Fleetwood. I believe that the heart of Fleetwood is on Fraser Highway and 152 Street. There are restaurants, retail stores and coffee shops here. However, I think it would make sense to move Fleetwood Park into that riding.
I encourage the Commission to stay true to the original draft of boundaries as these boundaries were decided upon by the Commission and not by special interest groups.
