The Peace River Regional District petition to the BC Supreme Court regarding the validity of the Electoral Area C Election was heard on November 22, 2022. The Court declared the election invalid due to issuance of ballots to electors from outside of Electoral Area C who were ineligible to vote, and has directed that the Area C Director position is vacant.
The PRRD will hold a by-election, as soon as possible, to fill the Area C Director position.
The Peace River Regional District (PRRD) is committed to upholding public trust in the democratic process and ensuring that elections are conducted in accordance with legislated procedures. We apologize to the candidates and voters who participated in the Electoral Area C election.
