Due to the growth over the years outside the city of Nanaimo, especially to the west and north, I feel the provincial electoral boundaries of Nanaimo should be extended.
This should include Lantzville to the north, as far west as population in that direction would allow including all of Jingle Pot Road and Benson Meadows. To the south the boundary should be extended at least to the Duke Point Highway intersection.
The dependence of these excluded areas on the city of Nanaimo for their social and economic needs are great and we should be able to be involved in the provincial affairs of the city!
I live off Jingle pot Road,5 minutes from downtown Nanaimo yet my MLA is a 1/2 hour away in Ladysmith!
Hopefully this committee will feel it necessary to correct this!
