HALIFAX - The Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission is proposing revisions to eight of Nova Scotia's 11 ridings.

The commission has given its report redrawing the province's federal electoral map to the Chief Electoral Officer of Canada.

It says the ridings of West Nova, Kings-Hants and Sydney-Victoria should keep their present boundaries.

But the commission says the remaining ridings should have their boundaries redrawn.

The report comes after the commission held a series of public consultations on the issue earlier this year.
