My name is Varinder Momrath. I have lived in Merritt since 1986. I support your preliminary report. I have travelled all over the Southern Interior and the Lower Mainland. There are big differences between communities like Chilliwack, Surrey and Abbotsford that are urban in nature, and small communities like Hope, Merritt, Ashcroft, Lytton and Lillooet. Hope does not belong with Chilliwack. Its needs (like forestry, mining, transportation, tourism, health care, education, etc.) are the same needs we in Merritt and the other Fraser-Nicola communities have. Moving Princeton into Boundary-Similkameen will not be a problem because it is similar to Fraser-Nicola. You have my support for your report. Thank you for doing such a good job.
