Constituency Referendum #4: Electoral Boundaries Commission proposed changes to Lanark County (2002 Fall)

Fall 2002

News release from Scott Reid respecting the views of Lanark County residents

 

In October 2002, Mr. Reid asked his constituents their opinion on the Electoral Boundary Commission’s decision to alter the federal constituency boundaries. 84% of respondents voted to maintain the boundaries of Lanark County within the riding, and 79% voted to include Smiths Falls in the same electoral district as Lanark County.

Mr. Reid presented these results to the Commission, requesting its decision reflect the stated views of his constituents. When the Commission ignored the request to keep Lanark County united, Mr. Reid petitioned to overturn the decision.

For the 2015 federal general election, following the next electoral boundary redistribution process, Lanark County was finally reunited within a single electoral district.
