Regional Government Review Open To The Public

The current Regional Government Review question is open to the public right now as to what they want to see change, or stay the same, about their local governments in an online consultation. This question will include the possibility of some of the 82 upper and lower municipalities in the regions amalgamating. The government says it has not made any decisions as of yet and wants the public to voice their opinions; though some members of municipal government have voiced concerns. The Province is requesting residents of those regions be the ones who participate in the review. You can find out more about it here.
