The Kenora-Rainy River district may soon be shrinking.

The Far North Electoral Boundaries Commission proposed two additional electoral districts within the region, and PC Candidate Douglas Judson is supportive of the move.

“I am delighted to see enhanced representation for the Northwest. It has always been challenging for a single representative to voice the interests of a region as large as Kenora—Rainy River, with such a wide range of economic, health, and public service needs. Now that we have the Commission’s Final Report, it is my intention to seek the Party’s nomination in the new riding of Kenora—Rainy River,” he said.

If the proposed change goes through, the district would shrink to Kenora, Dryden, Fort Frances, and Rainy River. The current riding would lose Ear Falls, Red Lake, and Sioux Lookout. Those areas, along with Marten Falls, would be renamed Kiiwetinong.

“I wish to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to those individuals from communities that will soon form part of the new riding of Kiiwetinoong for their support of my campaign.” he said.

The government must introduce legislation to implement the Commission’s final recommendations before October 30, 2017.

Judson has been keeping busy, as the 30-year-old lawyer and consultant was the president of the law society at Osgoode Hall, where he also graduated with a masters degree in business administration.
