Langley’s federal candidates meet with voters

A federal all candidates meeting for the Langley riding will be held Wednesday, April 20 at Kwantlen Polytechnic University auditorium at 20901 Langley Bypass. The meeting will run from 6:30 to 9 p.m.

The five local candidates on the ballot are Rebecca Darnell (Liberal Party of Canada), Piotr Majkowski (New Democratic Party), Craig Nobbs (Pirate Party of Canada), Carey Poitras (Green Party of Canada), and Mark Warawa (Conservative Party of Canada).

This non-partisan meeting is co-hosted by the university, Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce and Fraser Valley Real Estate Board. For more information call the chamber office at 604-530-6656.

A “meet and greet” with the federal candidates is also scheduled in Aldergrove this Friday evening at the private residence of Sukhi Dhami.

Dhami said that each candidate will be allowed five minutes to outline their platforms, followed by a question and answer session with the guests, which Dhami says may number more than a hundred. Appetizers and refreshments will also be served.

It runs from 7 p.m. on Friday, April 15 at Dhami’s residence, 3834 – 272 Street. For information call Dhami at 604-832-1772 or 604-857-0931.

In addition, the City of Langley Library hosts ‘Meet Your MP Hopefuls’ on Monday, April 18, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at the library, 20399 Douglas Crescent.

This will be an informal meet and greet with the five people who are vying for a chance to represent Langley’s riding in Parliament. All five candidates will be available to chat with voters over free coffee and treats.

This program is free and registration is not required. For information call the library at 604-514-2855.

Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce also hosts “A Conversation with our Federal Candidates,” an interview hosted by chamber president Milt Kruger. All five local candidates will be in attendance this April 19 dinner meeting.

“Being able to host all five of our federal candidates at the April dinner meeting gives our members an opportunity to hear firsthand their positions on many business related issues,” said Milt Kruger. “The evening will be very informative and very well attended. I would advise our members and guests to book their tickets early.”

The April 19 chamber dinner meeting will take place at Cascades Casino, Coast Hotel and Convention Centre, 20393 Fraser Highway, Langley, with networking from 5 to 6:30 p.m., when the dinner and presentations begin.
