Federal candidates meeting set for Cloverdale-Langley City Oct. 7

Cloverdale-Langley City: Forum presented by Langley, Cloverdale Chambers and the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board.

Voters in Cloverdale-Langley City will have at least one opportunity to watch their federal election candidates in action at an all candidates meeting scheduled for early next month.

It’s Wednesday, Oct. 7 from 7-9 p.m. at the Langley Kwantlen Polytechnic University Campus auditorium (20901 Langley Bypass), and presented by the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce, Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce, and the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board.

The non-partisan all-candidate meeting is free to attend, and is being organized so residents and business people in the new riding, which comes into effect after a boundary redistribution, can meet their candidates prior to voting day. With no incumbent, it’s shaping up to be an exciting race.

So far, candidates from four parties are each hoping to make history Oct. 19 by winning the first-ever seat in Cloverdale-Langley City as MP: Conservative Dean Drysdale, who won the electoral district’s nomination last fall, Liberal John Aldag, who stepped forward early in the new year, followed by the Green Party’s Scott Anderson and NDP candidate Rebecca Smith.

For more information on the event, contact the Langley Chamber office at 604-371-3770.

Please see ‘Federal Candidates Hoping to Make History’ for further details on the candidates.
