    I am writing to express my extreme displeasure and opposition to the proposed electoral boundary change which will remove the Village of Cumberland, my home, and other Valley communities from the Comox Valley district and move us into the Port Alberni district.

    I shop in Courtenay, participate in recreational and cultural activities in the Comox Valley, work in the Comox Valley and pay my taxes paid in the Comox Valley. Why should I not be represented in the Comox Valley by my provincial government? It is ten minutes for us living in Cumberland to get to Courtenay and an hour and a half to get to Port Alberni. How does this make sense? How is this democratic? It isn't. You are proposing taking a little chunk of a larger community and moving it to another very distant and removed community with no connections for the communities affected.

    I live in the Comox Valley and I expect to be represented in the Comox Valley.
