Election 2015: Seniors to host Langley all-candidates meetings

Afternoon sessions scheduled for both local ridings at the Langley Senior Resources Centre

A coalition of local seniors’ groups has scheduled two weekday afternoon all-candidates meetings for both Langley federal ridings.

The Langley-Aldergrove candidates will appear Monday, Oct. 5 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Aldergrove Legion, 26607 Fraser Hwy.

The Cloverdale-Langley City candidates will appear Wednesday, Oct. 7 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Langley Senior Resources Centre, 20605 51B Ave.

Organizers expect the focus to be on issues such as retirement income security, health care, home care supports, housing and transportation for seniors.

The announcement comes after the Greater Langley Chambers of Commerce and the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board announced two evening all-candidates meetings in the Langleys, one for Cloverdale-Langley City at Kwantlen Polytechnic University on Oct. 7 at 7 p.m. and one for Langley-Aldergrove on Oct. 8 at 7 p.m. in the Fraser River Presentation Theatre at the Township Civic Facility.
