I was born and raised in Merritt and have a degree in Respiratory Therapy. I am now doing my Master's Degree in Health Sciences. The reason I am telling you this is because my post-secondary education was paid for by Forestry Dollars. My dad, my brother and all my male relatives in Merritt are working in the forest industry. I am glad you put Hope back into Fraser-Nicola because like Merritt, Princeton, Lytton and Lillooet and Hope are all forestry and resource-dependent communities. Chilliwick is all about housing construction and agriculture and is fast-growing, while these small towns are losing people to regional cities like Chilliwack, Kelowna, kamloops, etc. Putting Hope into Fraser-Nicola will provide for better representation. Again, I support the Preliminary Report.
