New Boundaries, Same Services
The population of Electoral Area C grew rapidly since its inception. This led to a study into the feasibility of incorporating the most densely populated areas of Sorrento and Blind Bay into a municipal government. A referendum vote in 2021 did not support this option, therefore the default option was to split off a section of Electoral Area C and create a new Electoral Area G.
The boundaries of the two Electoral Areas were drawn in such a way to ensure citizens received more equal elected representation among the citizens of the South Shuswap.
