Statement: The Final Report of the Far North Electoral Boundaries Commission
Fort Frances, ON – Douglas Judson issued the following statement on the Final Report of the Far North Electoral Boundaries Commission:
“I am delighted to see improved representation for the Northwest. It has always been challenging for a single representative to voice the interests of a region as large as Kenora—Rainy River, with such a wide range of economic, health, and public service needs.
“I welcome the recommendation of the Commission and encourage the Attorney General and all parties in the Legislature to expedite its passage into law.
“I have been informed by Ontario PC Party officials that they have been waiting for the Commission to finalize its recommendation prior to proceeding with nominations in the regions which could be impacted.
“Now that we have the Commission’s Final Report, it is my intention to seek the Party’s nomination in the new riding of Kenora—Rainy River. This new riding will consist primarily of the communities of Kenora, Dryden, Fort Frances, Rainy River, and points between.
“I wish to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to those individuals from communities that will soon form part of the new riding of Kiiwetinoong for their support of my campaign.”
