CONSIDERED PROMISING:  Victoria  recently   were  the  Standing Committees.  These committees, such as  Forestry and Fishing^ Private  Bills and Standing Orders, and  Municipal Affairs, study Bills  and other, matters referred to  them by the Legislature.  One  important  committee  is  the "special" committee on Redistribution; This committee has  been   instructed  by  the  Legislature to investigate the boundaries     of    British    Columbia's  i electroral districts with a view  | to eliminating (multiple-member  ridings.  They will also attempt to  increase parliamentary representation from those congested  parts of B.C. such as Delta,  Burnaby and the city of Van<-  couver.  The multiple-member. ridings  return two or more members  to the Legjlsftature. Examples  are Vancouver East, Vancouver  Centre and Vancouver Burrard,  which return two members, and  Vancouver Point Qrey and the  City of Victoria,"which return  three members. So we see that  offices across ^ Canada, according to Gibsons Post master, J.  Marshall.
