Those Pipestone Flyer readers who live west of Pigeon Lake are going to have a very different election experience than those who live around Wetaskiwin.
New boundaries have divided the older two constituencies into three, including the new Maskwacis Wetaskiwin which takes in the City of Wetaskiwin and parts of the County of Wetaskiwin east of Pigeon Lake.
Many of our readers northwest of Pigeon Lake, along the Calmar, Thorsby and Warburg corridor, remain in the Drayton Valley Devon constituency.
However, our readers who live west of Pigeon Lake may be surprised to learn they are now part of the Rimbey Rocky Sundre constituency, a vast area that stretches from the west side of Pigeon Lake out to the B.C. border, down to Sundre and along Highway #2 to the Olds and Didsbury area.
Due to time and staff limitations, The Pipestone Flyer will not be able to publish candidate profiles for the Rimbey Rocky Sundre election or attend election forums in that area.
However, in an effort to help our readers in that area, here is a list of the registered candidates for the Rimbey Rocky Sundre constituency.
