The Alberta Electoral Boundaries Commission will be holding a public hearing in Brooks on July 21 to elicit more feedback on its controversial proposed changes in southeast Alberta.

According to the Alberta Elections website the presenters list is now closed, but commissioners will likely get an earful from those in attendance anyway.

Despite being one of the jurisdictions most heavily affected by the proposed changes, which would see Cypress-Medicine Hat disbanded, Medicine Hat grow, the fusion of Brooks-Newell with western Cypress County and Redcliff, and the creation of the Taber-Vulcan riding, no public meetings have been scheduled in either Medicine Hat or Taber this time around.

For those wishing to make the trip to Brooks to sit in on the public hearing, it is being held at the Heritage Inn Hotel and Convention Centre at 1217 Second St. W. at 1 p.m.
