The leader of the Manitoba NDP says that he’s against the proposed amalgamation of the ridings of The Pas and Flin Flon.
Wab Kinew spoke to Arctic Radio News, and said that the north deserves proper representation.
He said that if one MLA has to serve a large geographic area, that each community will not get proper representation in the Legislature.
The Fort Rouge MLA said that amalgamation of the two ridings would not be respecting the diversity in different communities.
Kinew added that the Electoral Division Boundaries Commission has until the end of the year to present their report, but that he expected them to release a report in the near future.
