I don't have a problem with rural voters having more representation than urban voters. They have very different, specific needs to be addressed, and the city benefits from a healthy, viable rural community. We would all lose if rural concerns were lost in the shuffle due to their smaller numbers.

However, that's not what's happening here. Not only are the levels of representation absurdly disproportionate, but we have lost sight of the fact that more and more of the amalgamated suburbs are just as urbanized as the old city. It is patently unfair for voters to be disenfranchised just because they live on the wrong side of Rymal Rd.
