Good afternoon, I’m the MLA for Chilliwack-Hope. I received a 375-name petition from Hope and area that I presented today in the Legislature, regarding the desire of the petitioners (my current constituents) not to be part of the constituency of Fraser-Nicola, but to remain part of the constituency of Chilliwack-Hope. I am attaching an electronic copy of it.
After I presented the petition today, two other pages were found and emailed to me, adding another 21 names, for a total of 396 names on the petition.
Although I will speak to and bring a copy of the petition with me when I appear before the Commission myself on Wednesday, I wanted to send it ahead of time in order to ensure that your deadline for commentary (May 26) by my constituents has been met, so that their views can be officially considered in the Commission’s Final Report.
Thanks for acknowledging its receipt.
