A Big Change Has Been Proposed for our Election Boundaries.

 

Manitobas Electoral Divisions Boundaries Commission has released its interim report on proposed changes to the province’s electoral map.  The reports states the 2016 Census data indicates that all current northern electoral divisions are below the established population quotient resulting in some major changes being proposed.  They include combining the communities of Flin Flon and The Pas into one electoral division, adjusting the Thompson electoral division to include the communities of Gillam and Nelson House and grouping most of the many Indigenous communities into two electoral divisions, Kewatinook and a new division Kameesak which in Cree means big in reference to Lake Winnipeg.

             

Hearings to gather input on these proposals will be held in September including the Victoria Inn in Flin Flon at 10 AM on the 12th, the Sam Waller Museum in The Pas at 5 PM on the 12th and the Best Western in Thompson at 5 PM on the 11th.
