Nova Scotia's electoral map

Joel Leforte

As we've been hearing in the news, the Electoral Boundaries Commission has submitted its blueprint for Nova Scotia's electoral map.

The interim report was made public today, and there are changes that will effect Cape Breton.
The most drastic is the loss of the riding of Cape Breton Nova.

The commission is suggesting most of that constituency become part of a new riding called "Sydney."

However one recommendation many feared is not included in the report.

The Commission says the Acadian riding of Richmond along with three other so-called "protected constituencies" should stay as they are.

That's welcome news for Joel Leforte at Ecole Beauport in Arichat.

The grade eleven student made a presentation to the Electoral Boundaries Commission. Reporter Bobby Nock spoke to him earlier today.
