Feds look for five more Alberta ridings

The federal government could add five more Alberta ridings through redistribution, upping the number of constituencies in Canada to 330 from the present 308.
    This latest move was mentioned in last week's Throne Speech and, according to Crowfoot MP Kevin Sorenson, "could be a great improvement in representation in our province."
    Mr. Sorenson told The Mail, "This legislation addresses the importance of the principle of representation by population and also recognizes the three provinces' population growth."
    Two other provinces, B.C. and Ontario, are also named to gain seats through the redistribution plans.
