Our riding could become Prince Edward Quinte West

It is proposed the Prince Edward Hastings electoral district   become the Prince Edward Quinte West as a result of federal redistribution suggestions.
Every 10 years, after the census is conducted, the number of electoral districts and their boundaries are revised to reflect population shifts and growth.

New boundaries are proposed, Canadians are consulted and a new electoral map is created. Ontario will gain 15 electoral districts as a result of the increase in its population from 11,410,046 in 2001 to 12,851,821, as captured in the 2011 Census.

The proposal for Prince Edward-Quinte West (population 105,035) would include Prince Edward County and the City of Quinte West and the County of Northumberland (excepting the Township of Hamilton; the Town of Cobourg and the Municipality of Port Hope).
In the proposal, a riding called Belleville-Napanee-Frontenac would include Belleville, Deseronto, Napanee and other townships. Hastings County north of Quinte West and Belleville would be in a riding called Lanark-Frontenac-Hastings.

The final report to the Chief Electoral Officer of Canada is due Feb. 21, 2013. Public meetings are set for Belleville on Nov. 8 and 9.

Those wishing to make a presentation at a hearing are requested to send the commission written notice no later than October 1.
Notices of presentation should include:
the person’s name, address and contact information
the organization he/she represents (if any)
the date of the public hearing he/she wishes to attend

the official language of preference

    It may also garner some better Politions in what is now Northumberland County. We in Campbellofrd have definitly suffered some untoward events with our present Mayor!

    I hope it does get changed!

    We were connected with Colborne and Murray township and trenton quite a few years ago and George Hees was our member–that was Federal
    We were also connected with Napanee Provincially
    It seems that what comes around goes around

    All this is being done as Toronto is going to get more members
    All this will do is give more power to the urban voter and give less power to the rural, so what else is new

  3. Mark says:

    At first thought it strikes me as Prince Edward having much closer ties with Belleville i.e. work,travel, business, shopping etc. than we do with Quinte West and Northhumberland. Obviously a need to re-align ridings but Prince Edward may have been cut right out of their natural relationships.

  4. Gary Mooney says:

    Any change of ridings will not take place until 2015, after the next provincial election. So we’ll have Todd Smith as our incumbent MPP for the next election.
