LETTER: A further explanation


Further to my letter of last week, and given the interest expressed by a number of citizens, I am compelled to elaborate further with regard to the situation, that the voters of Summerside have endured for the past number of years.

First of all, the voters living in the Meadow Heights subdivision now must vote for a member of the legislature from Borden-Carleton.

Secondly, voters residing in Woodridge subdivision, on the north side of Water Street between Reads Corner and Gillespie Creek, vote for a member from Kensington.

Finally, voters residing west of South Drive up to West Drive, vote for a member from Tyne Valley.

I would suggest that if the City of Summerside falls short of the average number of voters required to create three electoral districts, consideration should be given to communities that adjoin our city.

Communities such as Linkletter, North St. Eleanors, Travellers Rest, and Schurman’s Point, as residents in these nearby communities have much more in common with the city than those in Borden-Carleton, Kensington and Tyne Valley.
