Every two election cycles, B.C.'s electoral boundaries are modified by an independent body to ensure fair representation to voters based on population. The B.C. Liberals say an amendment to the Electoral Boundaries Commission Act, introduced by the NDP, could unfairly affect voters in rural areas. When the Liberals were in power, they added their own amendment to the act, which protected the electoral boundaries in three lesser-populated regions: Northern B.C., the Kootenays and the Central Interior. The NDP's new bill looks to remove that. Tom Shypitka, Liberal MLA for Kootenay East, says without that protection, electoral boundaries in rural areas could be redrawn into much larger ridings based on population size, which could limit voters' access to their MLAs. "People need to be connected to their provincial representative. That's what it's all about. That's why we have ridings in the first place," Shypitka said to Daybreak South host Chris Walker. "It's that lack of communication or lack of access that really has us worried." The Electoral Boundaries Commission's main goal is to ensure representation based on population, however, it also considers several other factors like "geographical and demographic realities, the legacy of the province's history and the need to balance the community interests of the people of British Columbia," according to the act. While Shypitka says re-drawn boundaries in cities like Vancouver and Surrey might see ridings shift by only a few blocks, in sparsely-populated rural areas, he warns it could cause boundaries to move by hundreds of kilometres. Tom Shypitka has been the MLA for the riding of Kootenay-East since he won the seat in 2017.(B.C. Liberals) The bill still needs to be passed and the boundaries redrawn by the independent commission, but Shypitka says his riding of Kootenay-East could potentially encompass an area stretching from Creston to Golden, which he says "is quite a jaunt and quite an issue for some people to mobilize and get to see their local MLAs." Political Gamesmanship The two-term MLA recognizes that the Liberals' frustration with the amendment could easily be seen as self-preservation, since the protected regions have long been Liberal strongholds. But he points out that the same could be said about the NDP's intention to remove that protection and secure an even stronger majority in the legislature. The Ministry of the Attorney General, however, says its amendment would provide further independence to the commission. "The intent of these amendments is to ensure the location of political boundaries between seats is determined not by politicians, but by an independent commission," it said in a release. "The process will not be guided by political interests, but by a legislated mandate to establish effective representation for British Columbians. Political back and forth aside, Shypitka says it comes down to ensuring fair representation for voters in both rural and urban ridings.
DETROIT (AP) — Miguel Cabrera drove in two runs and surpassed Omar Vizquel for the most major league hits by a Venezuelan player, leading the Detroit Tigers past the slumping Kansas City Royals 4-2 on Wednesday night. Cabrera's two RBI singles gave him 2,878, one more than Vizquel, who played his last game in 2012 and was a coach for Cabrera and the Tigers from 2014-17. Kansas City lost its 10th straight, the Royals' longest skid since they dropped 10 in a row from March 31-April 11, 2019. Casey Mize (2-3) allowed two runs on three hits and two walks in six innings. He hit one batter and struck out four. Three Detroit relievers finished, with Gregory Soto pitching the ninth for his fourth save. Danny Duffy (4-3) gave up a season-high four runs in six innings. The Royals took a 2-0 lead in the first. Mize hit leadoff hitter Whit Merrifield with a pitch and Carlos Santana worked a 10-pitch walk. Salvador Perez followed with an RBI double and Andrew Benintendi added a sacrifice fly. JaCoby Jones' single made it 2-1 in the second and Cabrera tied it with his first hit of the night. Detroit added two runs in the fifth. Robbie Grossman led off with a triple into the right-field corner. After Duffy struck out Jonathan Schoop, Jeimer Candelario doubled over center fielder Jarrod Dyson’s head. Cabrera then hit a grounder through the right side of the infield to score Candelario. MOVES The Tigers placed C Grayson Greiner (hamstring) on the 10-day injured list and purchased the contract of C Eric Haase. Detroit released RHP Franklin Perez, a key part of the Justin Verlander trade, to make room for Haase on the 40-man roster. UP NEXT The teams finish their series on Thursday with LHP Daniel Lynch (0-1, 18.56 ERA) starting for the Royals against Detroit’s Spencer Turnbull (1-2, 4.74). ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/hub/mlb and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Dave Hogg, The Associated Press

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy proposed Wednesday what he called a step toward a broader fiscal plan that includes placing in the state constitution a new formula for the annual check residents receive from Alaska's oil-wealth fund. The proposal, released a week before the scheduled end of the legislative session, also would restructure the Permanent Fund, rolling its spendable earnings reserve into the fund's constitutionally protected principal, and place in the principal an endowment used to help communities with high electricity costs. Dunleavy said the multibillion-dollar earnings reserve and the Power Cost Equalization endowment are “at risk” of being spent down and that the proposal would help settle long-running debates over issues that have become political footballs. “Imagine a world where we're not wrestling over the Permanent Fund again. Imagine a world where we're not wrestling over the PFD or the earnings reserve or PCE. Imagine what that will do in terms of conversations moving forward,” he said. “In my opinion ... it's unlimited what we can do once we get these heavy lifts out of the way." PFD refers to the annual Permanent Fund Dividends paid to residents. Debate over the size of the checks has overshadowed other issues in recent years, with lawmakers setting an amount to pay rather than following a longstanding formula in law amid an ongoing budget deficit. Lawmakers began in 2018 using the earnings reserve, long used to pay dividends, to also help pay for state government. Dunleavy is proposing a Permanent Fund draw limit, with half the draw going toward dividends. The proposal also would move $3 billion from earnings to a budget reserve fund that administration officials said could be used while work is done on a broader fiscal plan. The plan offered Wednesday is a revision of an earlier constitutional amendment Dunleavy proposed. It would need to be approved by two-thirds of each the House and Senate to qualify for the ballot in November 2022. Dunleavy said there is time this session to act. House Speaker Louise Stutes said the chances were “slim to none” the proposal would pass this session, set to expire May 19, but said she believed lawmakers would work with Dunleavy for a special session. Stutes called Dunleavy's proposal a “starting point.” She told reporters she believes there is a “general consensus amongst all legislators we need to address" the dividend and the dividend formula in some way. “Even though there's not a solution yet, there's an optimism that we're at least talking about a solution,” the Kodiak Republican said. Communication between Dunleavy's office and the Legislature has improved this year, she said. Dunleavy was joined at a news conference Wednesday by more than 20 legislators, mostly fellow Republicans. Many of them stood around him as he spoke, and a number spoke about the need to find resolution on the issue. Senate Majority Leader Shelley Hughes, a Palmer Republican, said compromise is needed. Legislators who dug in on their positions are “now willing to pull their heels out of the mud. That's a good thing.” She said reaching resolution on the dividend is key to addressing the state's deficit. “Because until this matter is settled, you cannot figure out how to close the rest of the gap,” she said. Discussions on spending and revenue will follow, she said. Sen. Jesse Kiehl, a Juneau Democrat who serves on a committee that heard the proposal Wednesday, called the proposed transfer of $3 billion to a budget reserve fund a “raid” on Permanent Fund earnings. He said that while he supports putting a dividend of some kind in the constitution, it needs to be “reasonable” and sustainable. He said the proposed approach would “get us to broad-based taxes faster than anything I've seen yet.” Sen. Bill Wielechowski, an Anchorage Democrat, said in an interview that he would look at Dunleavy's proposal and listen to public testimony. But he said it is a departure from what Dunleavy campaigned on and in a Facebook post said the state needs to stop “giving away our oil.” Dunleavy has said the state should follow the dividend formula until it is changed and said the public should be involved in any changes. The formula was last used in 2015. Dunleavy, who took office in 2018, has so far failed to persuade lawmakers to use the existing formula. ___ This story is corrected to show Dunleavy is proposing a Permanent Fund draw limit, instead of a limit from fund earnings.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Gerrit Cole struck out 12 over eight stellar innings, Aaron Hicks had a sacrifice fly and the New York Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Rays 1-0 on Wednesday night amid a coronavirus outbreak that sidelined shortstop Gleyber Torres. Cole (5-1) scattered four hits and has five starts this season of at least 10 strikeouts and no walks to break Mike Mussina's single-season team record set in 2001. He struck out all three batters in his final inning, including Brett Phillips on a 98 mph fastball to end the inning. Aroldis Chapman completed the four-hitter to get his ninth save as New York won consecutive games, including postseason, against the Rays for the first time since July 16-18, 2019. COVID-19 protocols impacted the Yankees for the second straight day. Torres was kept out of the starting lineup as a precaution as the number of confirmed positive COVID-19 tests among the team’s coach and support staff reached seven. New York manager Aaron Boone said there were a number of test results pending. Pitching coach Matt Blake joined third base coach Phil Nevin and first base coach Reggie Willits as members of the coaching staff testing positive. Six of the seven are asymptomatic. All are fully vaccinated, which Boone said was blunting the effects of the virus. Cole has not given up a walk and gone at least six innings in each of his last five starts, which ties Fritz Peterson (1971) for the second-longest such stretch in Yankees history. Only David Wells’ six-game streak from Sept. 6, 2002 to Apr. 10, 2003 is longer. The right-hander, who has walked just three batters this year, has allowed two or fewer earned runs in 12 straight starts, the longest stretch by a Yankees starter excluding openers since Whitey Ford’s 12-game run in 1963. Jeffrey Springs replaced Ryan Thompson (2-2) with runners on second and third with one out in the seventh and gave up Hicks' sacrifice fly. Yankees left fielder Clint Frazier was ejected by plate umpire Bill Miller in the fifth for arguing after taking a called third strike. Aaron Judge had three of New York's six hits. DOME BALL Tampa Bay’s Austin Meadows had a strange double in the first inning when he hit a towering fly to right off Cole that struck an overhanging catwalk and landed back toward the infield. TRAINER’S ROOM Yankees: RHP Luis Severino (Tommy John surgery) had his first live batting practice delayed due to back stiffness. ... Hicks (bruised right shin) started after missing one game. Rays: 1B Ji-Man Choi (right knee arthroscopic surgery) rejoined the team from a rehab assignment at Triple-A Durham as planned but is experiencing soreness. “I think this is just a minor thing and that there’s a chance he’s activated soon,” manager Kevin Cash said. “If it doesn’t go away then we’ll have to revisit.” ...

ORLANDO, Fla (AP) — Michael Bradley had a goal and an assist, Jozy Altidore also scored and Toronto FC beat the Columbus Crew 2-0 on Wednesday night for Chris Armas’ first victory with the Reds. Toronto (1-2-1) has lost just once in its last 10 matches against Columbus, going 6-1-3. Defending champion Columbus (1-0-3) had its eight-game unbeaten streak snapped. Bradley capitalized on a failed clearance in the 13th minute for his first goal since Sept. 7, 2019. Toronto nearly went ahead 2-0 in the 26th, but Nick DeLeon’s shot hit the crossbar and Yeferson Soteldo’s empty-net attempt was denied by defender Saad Abdul-Salaam. Altidore entered as a substitute in the 62nd minute. He hit the crossbar in the 75th and headed home a goal 12 minutes later. REVOLUTION 1, UNION 1, TIE CHESTER, Pa.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former White House counsel Don McGahn will answer questions in private from the House Judiciary Committee in an apparent resolution of a longstandin dispute over his testimony, according to a court document filed Wednesday evening. Democrats who run the committee have sought McGahn's testimony for two years as part of an investigation of potential obstruction of justice by former President Donald Trump during special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. They pressed ahead with the subpoena even after President Joe Biden took office in January. Under an agreement negotiated by the committee and Justice Department, McGahn will only be questioned about information attributed to him in publicly available portions of Mueller's report. The date of the private interview has not been set. A transcript will be made public about a week later, the filing in the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia said. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, said the agreement is a good-faith compromise that “satisfies our subpoena, protects the Committee’s constitutional duty to conduct oversight in the future, and safeguards sensitive executive branch prerogatives.” Trump's Justice Department had fought efforts to have McGahn testify. U.S. District Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson in 2019 rejected Trump's arguments that his close advisers were immune from congressional subpoena. Biden has nominated Jackson to the appeals court in Washington. The case has been in that court ever since Jackson's ruling. The full appeals court is scheduled to hear the case for a second time next week. The issue is whether the House has authority under the Constitution or federal law to ask courts to enforce a subpoena against an executive branch official. The administration and the House have asked the court to call off the hearing, preferring to reach an agreement rather than risk an unfavorable court ruling. The Associated Press
ATLANTA (AP) — Trae Young scored 33 points and John Collins hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 24.4 seconds remaining Wednesday night, rallying Atlanta to a 120-116 victory over the Washington Wizards to clinch the Hawks' first playoff berth since 2017. Atlanta came into the night tied for fourth place in the Eastern Conference and looking to solidify home-court advantage in the opening round. That's still up in the air, but the Hawks are definitely headed to the playoffs after going through a painful, massive rebuilding job that still appeared to be a work in progress when the team fired coach Lloyd Pierce shortly before the All-Star break while mired at 14-20. Under interim coach Nate McMillan, who should receive strong consideration in the coach of the year balloting, the Hawks have posted a 25-11 mark to stamp themselves as a dangerous opponent heading into the postseason. “We clinched, baby!” the public address announcer screamed after the horn sounded. Russell Westbrook scored 34 points and dished out 15 assists, but it wasn't enough to prevent another excruciating loss for the Wizards, whose last five defeats have been by a total of 10 points. Two nights after breaking Oscar Roberson’s record with his 182nd career triple-double, Westbrook came up a bit short of No. 183. He was held to five rebounds. The Wizards were up 100-87 — matching their biggest lead of the night — when Davis Bertans knocked down a 3-pointer off a dish from Westbrook with just over 10 minutes remaining. It didn't hold up. After missing a couple of 3s that could've put them ahead, the Hawks finally knocked one down. Clint Capela got it started with a block on Westbrook, sending the Hawks on a fast break the other way. Young spotted Collins all alone in the corner for the 3 that put the Hawks ahead 117-116. Raul Neto missed a 10-foot jumer for Washington. Solomon Hill rebounded, was fouled and knocked down both free throws. The Wizards had one more gasp, but Bertans missed a long 3 from the top of the key. Collins was fouled and sealed the victory by making one of two free throws with 3.7 seconds left. Collins finished with 18 points. Bogdan Bogdanovic had 20 for the Hawks. Washington was held scoreless over the final 2 1/2 minutes, missing its final eight shots. Atlanta beat the Wizards for the second time in three nights. On Monday, Washington came up just short in a furious comeback from a 17-point deficit heading to the fourth quarter, losing 125-124 as Westbrook missed a potential game-winning 3-pointer. TIP-INS Wizards: G Bradley Beal (left hamstring strain) will be re-evaluated Friday after missing both games in Atlanta. “Brad wants to get back out there,” coach Scott Brooks said. “He's tough as nails.” Beal did some light drills on the court before the game, which Brooks described as “the next step progressing in the right direction.” Hawks: Young has scored at least 30 points in three straight contests and five of his last seven games. He has reached that mark 22 times this season. ... Won their ninth straight home game and improved to 17-2 over their last 19 appearances at State Farm Arena. UP NEXT Wizards: Return home for their final two games of the regular season, facing the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night. Hawks: Play their next-to-last game of the regular season when they host the Orlando Magic on Thursday night. ___ Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at https://twitter.com/pnewberry1963 His work can be found at https://apnews.com/search/paulnewberry ___ More AP NBA: https://apnews.com/NBA and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Paul Newberry, The Associated Press
