I am a university student and working in a sawmill to finance my education. I support your Preliminary Report because it recommends bringing Hope back into our riding. Like my community, Hope is also dependent upon resource extraction and tourism. There is a mill-wright I work with who travels regularly from Hope to Merritt to work here. Also, many First Nations students from Hope and the Fraser Canyon attend college at NVIT in Merritt. There are many links between Merritt and Hope.
