PRRD accepts boundary commission letter as information

Feedback wanted by Nov. 22.
The Peace River Regional District office in Dawson Creek.

As one of their first budget items as the new PRRD board of directors, officials accepted a letter from the BC Electoral Boundaries Commission as information.

We have released our Preliminary Report which illustrates our recommended changes to B.C’s electoral districts for provincial elections. We are seeking feedback on the recommendations in the report by November 22, noted Serena Cizmecigil with the BC Electoral Boundaries Commission

Justice Nitya Iyer, Commission Chair says the commission is working because BC is a growing province.

“The population has increased by nearly half a million people over the last five years. Our recommendation to increase the number of electoral districts in B.C. reflects that growth.”

Both MLA Mike Bernier and MLA Dan Davies’ riding will be unaffected by any commission recommendations.
