12.1 Councillor Hum

“Whereas the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board is the body appointed by the Government of Nova Scotia under the Municipal Government Act (MGA) to review, alter or confirm the boundary review required to be undertaken by the Municipality and;

Given that the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board already has broad powers, under the MGA Section 368, in regard to all aspects of the municipality’s boundary submission.

It is recommended that Halifax Regional Council:

1. Request that the Province of Nova Scotia amend the MGA Part XVI, Section 369 to remove Council as the body required to conduct the study of the number and boundaries of polling districts in the municipality and to direct that the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board shall be the body that both conducts the study and sets the number and boundaries of polling districts and number of Councillors for Municipalities in Nova Scotia, including the Halifax Regional Municipality and;

2. Seek the support of the Union of Nova Scotia Municipalities (UNSM) to advance this amendment to the Province of Nova Scotia to take effect for all future boundary reviews.”
