The Village of Cumberland will request the federal government consult municipalities regarding the proposed Fair Elections Act.

According to a village staff report, municipalities and municipal residents would be directly affected by the act, and the “federal government has a responsibility to listen to municipalities through a consultation process before enacting any policy.”

Council voted unanimously in favour of requesting consultation.
