Metro Vancouver is looking for an electoral facelift as the region's federal riding boundaries are re-drawn to accommodate five new seats in Ottawa.
Recommendations released last week from B.C.'s Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission include adding a new riding in the city centre called Vancouver Granville.
It also proposes amalgamating portions of ridings in North Burnaby and North Vancouver - two areas divided by Burrard Inlet - to create a new electoral district.
Delta would get its own riding instead of sharing electoral districts with Richmond and Surrey, while two new districts would be created for Langley-Cloverdale and Mission, respectively.
The commission proposes new federal ridings every 10 years as the nation's population adjusts.
