Zimmer has said the name is more appropriate, due to the growth of the Northern Rockies Regional Municipality. 

“It is rewarding to know that the Commission has decided to agree with my recommendation to change the name of our very large riding,” he says. “I strongly believe that including Northern Rockies in the new electoral district’s name will better represent the people and communities that live within these boundaries. I am especially happy for Mayor Streeper and the people of Fort Nelson and the Northern Rockies ‎Regional District.” 

The name change isn’t official yet, but the Chief Electoral Officer will include the report when drafting the representation order, which is expected to be proclaimed in the fall. It would then come into effect the day that parliament is dissolved for the general election, which will take place seven months later.
