I am very concerned to learn that the electoral boundaries commission is considering dividing up the Comox Valley and moving Cumberland and the communities south of Courtenay, including Fanny Bay, into another riding south and west of the Beaufort mountain range. My community is the Comox Valley. I work, shop and socialize in Courtenay and Comox. I am familiar with the social and political issues that affect this community. I do not have any affiliation with Port Alberni or the West Coast except as a tourist. The proposed changes could discourage me from voting. If the proposed changes are to go ahead, then please use common sense and keep Cumberland within the existing boundaries. Thank you for your consideration.
