Rural Representative Elections
Twelve electoral area directors and four municipal directors govern the affairs of the Cariboo Regional District. The electoral area directors are elected by area voters, and municipal directors are appointed by their municipal council. All directors serve for a four-year term.
Regional District Electoral Areas are A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K and L.
Electoral areas have no administrative or governmental significance; they are used only to elect rural representatives to regional district boards.
Cariboo A (Red Bluff-Quesnel South) is a regional district electoral area (RDEA) in the Cariboo Regional District, British Columbia, Canada. The electoral area is located along the east side of the Fraser River south of Quesnel and west of the Quesnel River. The area represented is also referred to as the North Cariboo, but that term also includes the City of Quesnel, and the many Indian Reserves within its boundaries are not part of the system of regional district governance and are outside the regional district's jurisdiction.
The Cariboo District and 100 Mile House are featured prominently in Al Purdy's poem "The Cariboo Horses" to examine the tradition of equinity against human civilization.
