The new proposed riding (left) would lose communities like Brockton and South Bruce absorb areas like North Middlesex and Lambton Shores.

Bruce County council will be objecting to the Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission’s proposed redistribution of local electoral districts, that aims to get rid of Huron-Bruce and create a new riding of South Huron Shores.

At yesterday’s meeting, council voted in favour of a motion by Brockton Mayor Chris Peabody to write to the commission, objecting to the proposed changes.

The redistribution would stretch the “South Huron Shores” riding across four counties and¬†Peabody says the current system is working fine.

Should you want to voice your opinion, the commission is holding virtual public hearings on Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 6:30 pm and an in-person hearing in London on Monday, Oct. 24.
