Electoral boundaries hearing Wednesday in Victoria

Proposed changes to Victoria riding put to public at meeting

Federal representatives are in town tonight (Oct. 17) overseeing a public hearing into the government’s proposed changes to the electoral boundaries.

In Victoria, the change mostly affects Vic West, which is proposed to be carved off from the rest of the city to join Esquimalt and parts of the West Shore in a new riding.

It is too late to submit a request to speak, but anyone is welcome to listen to the hearing. It starts at 7 p.m. at the Victoria Conference Centre.
