Update on the final B.C. and Alberta maps
Vancouver Granville returns and other final adjustments to federal ridings
On Thursday, the Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia redistribution commissions published their final reports that take into account the objections MPs had made to some of their proposed changes to the federal electoral map.
It means the process is finally complete — now the maps just need to be adopted by parliament for them to be ready to use next spring. (A snap election this fall would use the current map in place.)
But the commissioners adopted some of the recommendations proposed by MPs, particularly those in British Columbia. So, let’s take a look at how the map that will be used in the next election differs from the final proposals.
