A boundary change could be in the future for the federal Kenora riding, splitting the riding into two.
Every ten years, the Constitution of Canada requires that federal electoral districts be reviewed to reflect changes and movements in Canada's population. That process has begun and could see the creation of the Kenora - Thunder Bay - Rainy River riding and the Kiiwetinoong - Mushkegowuk riding.
The proposed Kenora - Thunder Bay - Rainy River riding would include; Kenora, Dryden, part of the City of Thunder Bay, Atikkokan, Fort Frances, Rainy River, Emo, Ignance, Machin and, Sioux Narrows-Nestor Falls amoung other communities. A full list can be found by clicking this link.
The proposed Kiiwetinoong - Mushkegowuk riding would include; Sioux Lookout, Red Lake, Ear Falls and, Pickle Lake amoung other communities. A full list can be found by clicking this link.
Several other ridings in Northern Ontario are also facing proposed changes.
The Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission of Ontario will be holding two in-person hearings to gather comments and feedback on the proposed boundaries and electoral district names.
There will be a hearing in Kenora on Tuesday, October 4 at the Dougal Family Arts Centre - The Muse at 6:30 p.m. The Forest Inn & Conference Centre in Sioux Lookout on Monday, October 3 at 6:30 p.m.
To attend one of these hearings you must sign up by September 25.
