TO ALL RESIDENTS OF FRASER HEIGHTS COMMUNITY

We, as a Fraser Heights Community Association are opposed to splitting up our community. We believe that while we will be joined with other Communities to form a Federal Government riding, we, as Fraser Heights, should remain intact as a community. Additionally, whatever Communities we are joined with to form the boundaries of our federal riding should be on the South side of the Fraser River.

Potential wording for your email:
I, _ (insert name here) ___________________ of (insert address here), as a member of the Fraser Heights community, oppose the re-drawing of new Federal Ridings in such a way as to split up our community. I believe that the entire community north of Highway 1 from the Port Mann Bridge to Golden Ears Way should be in the same riding, along with other communities south of the Fraser River.
