As a Council we fully recognize the difficult task the Commission faces in balancing many competing objectives. Our Council clearly understands the mandate of the Electoral Boundaries Commissions. Our presentation today will focus on the proposed districts for Corner Brook and how we feel it will impact our constituents. At the outset I would like to voice our opposition to the reduction of seats from forty-eight to forty. I believe the reduction of seats will have a detrimental impact on rural Newfoundland and particularly communities outside the Avalon Peninsula. It is our overall recommendation that the status quo of forty eight seats in the House of Assembly remain in place. Given that the Commission has submitted a proposal to divide of the province into forty districts we submit the following feedback.
City efforts are ongoing to clear city streets from snow and ice. The thaw-freeze cycle is creating potholes and ice ruts on municipal streets
