The Redistribution of Electoral Boundaries Provokes Questions

Each province has an Electoral Boundaries Commission to decide the redistribution of electoral boundaries.  The commission consists of a judge appointed by the chief justice of the province and two members appointed by the Speaker of the House of Commons.  They listen to public input, but these three people have the final say on redistribution.

Neither Canadian citizens nor their elected representatives are voting on the final redistribution.  Is this process democratic?

What is the cost to taxpayers to redistribute electoral boundaries?

Given the Government of Canada’s deficit and debt, is it prudent to do this now?
