Electoral Boundaries Commission Act under review

“Protecting the democratic rights of British Columbians is a fundamental responsibility of government. That’s why we are taking a leadership role in proposing legislative changes to the Electoral Boundaries Commission Act. We encourage the public to read and provide input on the white paper, as this is something that impacts every British Columbian.”Quote by Suzanne Anton, Attorney General and Minister of Justice 

We encourage members to engage in this proposal:

The B.C. government is proposing amendments to the Electoral Boundaries Commission Act that would maintain existing northern and rural electoral districts and ensure the total number of districts remains at 85.

The Electoral Boundaries Commission Act White Paper details the proposed amendments and is available for public comment until Jan. 15, 2014.

The proposed amendments:

  • address the need to ensure effective representation for northern and rural British Columbians;
  • ensure the responsible use of tax dollars by holding the line on the creation of new electoral districts; and
  • provide the Electoral Boundaries Commission clear direction before it begins its work in May 2014.

For more information, see the Electoral Boundaries Commission Act White Paper and news release.
