    My name is Kim Maynard and I live in Princeton. Earlier, I made a post regarding Princeton. I want to add my comments about the changes to Hope and the Fraser Canyon. I agree with the changes recommended in your Preliminary Report that puts the Fraser Canyon communities of Hope, Yale, Spuzzum, Boston Bar, North Bend and Boothroyd back into Fraser-Nicola again. They used to be a part of Fraser-Nicola prior to 2009 when it was known as the Yale-Lillooet Constituency. These communities have a lot in common with the other communities of Fraser-Nicola such as Princeton, Merritt, Lytton, Lillooet, Ashcroft and Logan Lake. Our major economies are based on transportation, tourism, agriculture and resource extraction in forestry and mining. We share a common geography, history and small-town way of life. We are also losing many public services like health care and education. Chilliwack, on the other hand, is a larger urban center and its housing economy is doing quite well.
