My name is Kuldip Dulai. I am a retired sawmill worker and have lived in Merritt since 1971. Our provincial riding was known as Yale-Lillooet and Hope was a part of it when I first moved here. Merritt and Hope have a lot in common and it is easy to travel over the Coquihalla Highway in all weather conditions. I know there are some people in the Chilliwack ad Hope area who are complaining about the travel time to Merritt of one hour. I can recall a time before “The Coqe” when folks in Merritt or Hope had to travel 3 or more hours to get to the other community, but never complained. I think that is just a lame excuse some people are using. It was really too bad that Hope was taken out in 2009. I am happy to learn that the electoral commission in its wisdom has re-instated Hope back into our riding of Fraser-Nicola again. I am wondering if the Commission might go one more step and call our ridng Yale-Lillooet again.
