Below is a list of the regions and areas where a Regional Leader is needed. The Region names are associated with MLA ridings. Cities and towns are listed to provide reference to the geographical area. Some large regions can certainly benefit from having more than one Regional Leader due to geographical size and/or population, and so the Region could be split up with another Regional Leader so that you can represent your designated area comfortably.
