NDP MPPs write letter to Federal Electoral Boundary Commission

Several New Democrat MPPs are calling for fair electoral representation for northern Ontario residents.  

The list includes Timiskaming-Cochrane’s John Vanthof. 

They’re asking the Ontario Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission to reconsider a proposed electoral boundary change that they say would diminish the representation of Northern Ontarians in Parliament.

In a letter addressed to the Commission last week, the MPPs said that the proposed federal boundary change would have a negative impact on regional development, the provision of local services, and the right to participatory democracy for all Northern Ontarians, including Indigenous Peoples and Franco-Ontarians. 

In opposing the proposed change, the MPPs say they’re committed to ensuring that the voices and concerns of Northern Ontarians are amplified and not silenced.
