The Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission's proposed new riding boundaries South of the Fraser.

Have your say on new federal electoral map

Surrey public hearing on new boundaries, including a Langley-Cloverdale riding, takes place Sept. 12

The Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for B.C. is set to hold public hearings throughout the province this September and October on its new federal electoral map.

People are invited to express their views before the commission makes its final decision about how the boundaries will change.

The redrawing would give Surrey a fifth MP and a new federal riding.

Cloverdale and Clayton would be split off from the existing South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale riding, leaving a South Surrey-White Rock riding in the south and a new Langley-Cloverdale riding.

A public hearing in Surrey will take place at the Sheraton Guilford (15269 104th Ave.) on Sept. 12 at 7 p.m.

Anyone who wants to present at the hearing is asked to send the commission a written notice by Aug. 30. Written comments will be accepted until Oct. 18. Email bc-cb@rfed-rcf.ca or write to the Commission Secretary at 1095 West Pender St., Suite 301, Vancouver, B.C. V6E 2M6.
