New Provincial Ridings

Attorney General Yasir Naqvi said the government would move forward on improving the representation for residents in the two vast northern ridings of Kenora-Rainy River and Timmins-James Bay, both of which are held by the NDP.

“Our government plans to introduce legislation this fall to implement the commission’s recommendation to create two new ridings, called Kiiwetinong and Mushkegowuk,” said Naqvi.

Kiiwetinong, which is 68 per cent Indigenous, includes the northern portion of the current boundaries of Kenora-Rainy River and has a population of 32,987.

The southern portion with a population of 53,027, 25 per cent of which is Indigenous, will be the new Kenora-Rainy River and include Dryden and Fort Frances.

Mushkegowuk, which is home to 30,037 people, 60 per cent of whom are francophone and 27 per cent are Indigenous, is the northern portion of the current Timmins-James Bay riding.

Timmins, which is 36 per cent francophone and 12 per cent Indigenous, will be a riding unto itself for its 41,788 residents.

Even if Bisson opts to run in the other riding it's likely Timmins will end up electing the new Nothing Done Party candidate.

Nothing Done Party or Loseberal or Pathetic Curmudgeon, it doesn't matter. It's Timmins, a little rinky dink riding in the far flung areas of the vast North. It's lucky it is recognized by anyone. Hate to say but it is the reality. I said that for years when we lived there.

As for here, we are in the far flung areas of Southern Ontario. Anything west of London is pretty much forgotten about.

True but, with a MPP from the party in Power, we might have a chance as some funding or something, maybe a grant for Scars and Blunder 2018!!

He lives in Timmins and would run here. It would be easier for him because he would only have to campaign within city limits rather than in an area larger than many countries.

The other two parties haven't had much organization in Timmins for awhile so unless there is some type of last minute wave of change he will remain our MPP.
