Electoral Boundaries Commission Proposes Two New Ridings
Prince George, B.C. – There may be two new ridings in B.C. come the 2017 provincial election.
The independent Electoral Boundaries Commission proposed the changes in a report released today.
The ridings would be added in Richmond and Surrey – both areas of significant population growth.
The commission also proposed boundary changes to 49 other ridings, including the two in Prince George.
The changes would move the entire Hart neighbourhood into the Prince George-Mackenzie riding and all of College Heights into Prince George-Valemount.
The public can comment on the proposed changes up until May 26 and the final report will be complete in September.
The proposed changes are not binding on government.
