Canada’s getting a new electoral map. Who does it favour?

By The Big Story

In today’s Big Story podcast, thankfully, Canada’s process for updating its federal electoral map is nothing like America’s partisan nightmare. But that doesn’t mean it won’t have an impact on the results. Every decade, boundaries are moved, new seats are added, and somebody has to win them.

Éric Grenier is a polling expert and founder of The Writ, he joins us to discuss the recent changes made to the Canadian electoral map, and how they may impact the outcome of future elections.

“If [MPs] see that their riding is changing a lot and it might impact their chances of getting re-elected, they tend to have more objections than MPs who are not seeing as many changes to their ridings,” he said.

So what’s changing, what’s moving where, and who stands to benefit?
