Politicizing Riding Boundaries

It's endemic to American politics and it's coming to Canada fast. In addition to Peter Van Loan's attempt to screw Ontario out of a bunch of federal seats that it deserves, now in BC the Liberals and the NDP are fighting over the number and location of provincial ridings. I confess that I don't know enough about BC provincial politics to form a strong opinion on who started this politicization of ridings there, but it is part of a worrying trend.

Edit: Northern BC Dipper has more on this topic.
