If you live on the east side of the river in Saskatoon, there's a good chance your provincial constituency boundaries will change, or your constituency will have a new name.
As a result of population growth, and government go-ahead for 3 new constituencies, the Saskatchewan Provincial Constituency Boundaries Commission has drawn up proposed new boundaries and the interim report has been released.
Stuart Pollon, the Deputy Chair of the Saskatchewan Provincial Constituency Boundaries Commission says Saskatoon got two new constituencies as a result of population growth and most of the changes to constituencies were made on the east side of the river.
Regina got one new constituency and Pollon says there was plenty of movement of constituency boundaries in rural Saskatchewan as well as a result of changing demographics.
The Commission will hold hearings throughout the province this September to hear from groups or individuals about the changes and a final report will be made to the province in October.
