Acadian minister on Acadian ridings

Acadian Affairs Minister Michel Samson is wondering why the Acadian Federation is threatening to take the riding boundary dispute to court. It wants the boundaries changed to reflect a court decision before an election is called.

Samson says that isn’t neccessary since the government and Acadian Federation have been talking and he claims they are close to a process to address those concerns.

The Federation says calling an election before the boundaries are settled would be unconstitutional. Samson disagrees.
