Northern Manitoba To Retain Four Representatives In Next Election

The ridings won’t be the same the next time Manitobans go to the polls for a provincial election.

 

The Manitoba Electoral Boundaries Commission recently released their 2018 report, which has Winnipeg gaining one seat while rural areas lose one seat.

 

Despite originally proposing the combination of Flin Flon and The Pas into one riding, the new boundaries have the two communities remain in different ridings, though the boundaries will be changing.

 

The Thompson riding will be expanding in size considerably to include communities like Nelson House, Gillam, and Churchill.

 

The Commission says that the new boundaries divide the north into four electoral divisions that have better balanced populations, are similar in size and respect travel patterns as well as communities of interest.

 

The map of the full changes can be found below.
