The latest shuffle in federal electoral boundaries could see 100 Mile House and Valemount out of the Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo riding and Chase brought in, the region's MP said Thursday.
But no changes will be made official without the public's input, said Cathy McLeod.
Locals get the chance to voice their views Oct. 11 at a 7 p.m. hearing at the Kamloops Convention Centre.
"It's an opportunity for the citizens of these communities to look at (the proposal) before they finalize what the new boundaries will look like," said McLeod.
The Electoral Boundary Commission has proposed that 100 Mile House be included in Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon and Valemount moved to Prince George-Peace River. Chase would be shuffled out of Okanagan-Shuswap and into Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo.
McLeod said the commission tries to keep the population within each boundary at 104,000. Even with the changes, Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo would sit at about 110,000.
Federal electoral boundaries are reviewed every 10 years, based on census information. The commission proposes six new ridings be added to B.C.
