It appears as though Commission has sided with Williams Lake on the recent electoral boundaries. While I support giving all of Williams Lake it's own riding, I also feel the population of the ridings in Cariboo North should also be balanced with the population of Williams Lake/Chilcotin. Especially when the population of the Quesnel area is larger than Williams Lake and area, so our riding should be reflected in much the same way. As this area of the province generates significant income and employment for the rest of the province, it should be considered "special" due to the large area it serves despite a lower population than the GVR ridings. I believe we should try to capture the spirit of equal seats.
Thanks for your time and consideration.
