A Proposal Has Been Put Forward to Make Our Large Northern Manitoba Constituency Even Larger.

The Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for Manitoba has introduced proposed changes to Manitoba’s federal electoral boundaries developed through an independent and non-partisan process.

             

They report a decrease in population between 2011 and 2021 in Churchill Keewatinook Aski bringing it to15.24 percent below the provincial average when the Commission aims for plus or minus five percent.  To bring it closer to parity at minus seven percent they propose adding several communities from the Dauphin-Swan River-Neepawa electoral district including six First Nations communities, two rural municipalities and one municipality as well as two First Nations from the riding of Selkirk-Interlake-Eastman.

             

They note the size of the new district poses a challenge but improving technology will allow for better communications including videoconferencing also noting unlike some communities already in the riding the added communities are accessible by road.
