Dear Electoral Boundary Commission
Thank you for the opportunity to respond to your proposed changes. First off, I want to say I think you got it mostly right (or at least for Surrey from my perspective).
Establishing a new riding of Surrey Fleetwood better reflects the way we live in Surrey and our connections to one another. As a parent, I am involved in many aspects of our community, and in particular how we interact through our children.
That’s why I’m asking you to consider changing the riding boundaries of Surrey Fleetwood to ensure Fleetwood Park and Fleetwood Park Secondary School are within the boundaries of this riding.
Whether it’s the challenges of everyday life, to the recent concerns of gun violence, our schools have to be at the forefront of building healthy neighbourhoods. I’m concerned the current proposal not only keeps these two major community centres. Therefore, I will urge to reconsider your decision and include the Park and school in the Fleetwood Boundary.
