Resident questions census results

Re: Hope’s population is still shrinking (Feb. 22)

Perhaps if the last census had been carried out properly we would not have lost population.

Homeowners in at least three trailer parks on Flood-Hope Road did not receive census forms nor a visit from a census taker. For myself, this is the second census that I’ve not been counted.

I know of other people living elsewhere in Hope who have told me they never received any forms or a visit. I don’t think Hope’s population has shrunk, rather the census was carried out improperly.
