Notice of Additional Public Hearing in Oakville

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/09/12 -- The Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for Ontario has scheduled an additional public hearing in Oakville to engage citizens in a discussion on possible changes to the boundaries of federal electoral districts in the Halton region.

In August, the Commission published its proposal for a new electoral map, for discussion at hearings this fall. Prior to the proposal, the Halton region had three electoral districts. Public feedback has led the Commission to consider significant changes to the proposed electoral districts of Oakville, Burlington, Halton and Milton. As a result of public hearings conducted in Cambridge and Niagara Falls, the Commission was persuaded that a new electoral district proposed for the Cambridge area would be a better fit in the Halton region. The Commission was also persuaded that the Town of Halton Hills should be removed from the electoral district of Wellington-Halton Hills and included in a new electoral district to be created in the Halton region. The Commission is therefore now proposing that the Halton region have five electoral districts.

The electoral district of Oakville would remain unchanged from the Commission's original proposal.

The electoral district of Burlington would be revised slightly. It would be comprised of the current boundaries of the electoral district, less that portion lying north of the hydroelectric transmission line, east of Brant Street, south of Dundas Street and west of Guelph Line.

The Commission is now proposing an electoral district to be named Oakville North-Burlington. It would be comprised of the balance of the Town of Oakville lying north of Upper Middle Road, and that part of the City of Burlington lying north of the Queen Elizabeth Way, east of Walkers Line to Upper Middle Road, east of Appleby Line to Dundas Street, and south of Dundas Street to the municipal boundary of the City of Burlington.

The Commission is proposing a new electoral district to be named Burlington North-Milton South. It would be comprised of the balance of the City of Burlington not included in the electoral districts of Burlington and Oakville North-Burlington, plus that part of the Town of Milton lying south of Derry Road to Tremaine Road, north to Steeles Avenue, east to the railway line, south of the railway line to Derry Road, east on Derry Road to Cedar Hedge Road, then north to the southern boundary of the Town of Halton Hills, and east along that boundary to the municipal boundary of the Town of Milton.

The Commission is now proposing a new electoral district to be named Halton Hills-Milton. It would be comprised of the balance of the Town of Milton not included in the electoral district of Burlington North-Milton South, plus the Town of Halton Hills.

"We want to give citizens who would be affected an opportunity to express their views," said the Honourable Mr. Justice George Valin, Chair of the Commission. "The new hearing is simply a matter of due process, transparency and ensuring full public participation."

The public hearing will take place on Wednesday, November 21, 2012, at 9:30 a.m., at the Holiday Inn & Suites, 2525 Wyecroft Road, in Oakville.

Everyone is invited to attend. You can also share your views with the Commission by sending a written submission by e-mail to [email protected] or by calling 1-855-747-7224.
