PUBLIC INVITED TO MEETING ABOUT BOUNDARY CHANGES: Electoral Changes Could Have Huge Impact
October 12th, 2012 - 5:40pm
Charlie Angus is inviting people to a public meeting about proposed Electoral Boundary Changes. The meeting, being held in New Liskeard this Monday (Oct 15th), will examine proposed federal boundary changes.
Under the proposed plan, the Timiskaming region will be divided along the Englehart area and moved to the riding of Nickel Belt. At the same time, the new riding of Timmins-Cochrane James Bay will be made larger in population than the urban riding of Sudbury.
Angus says the public has a right to be heard.
“Northern Ontario ridings are already massive. The proposed plan to move communities like Englehart and New Liskeard to Nickel Belt will have a major impact on future development. We also wonder why mega ridings like Timmins-James Bay will be made even larger while urban ridings like Sudbury and North Bay-Nipissing will be made smaller.”
The public is invited to participate in the event:
