No changes for local electoral boundaries

The government has accepted the recommendations of the Electoral Boundaries Commission that included keeping the same number of ridings in rural BC.

This despite them being well below the population normally required for a riding.

Katrine Conroy – MLA for Kootenay West- says this is a first for the area because the Commission could have re-aligned local boundaries.
