2019 Federal election All Candidates Meeting

The Willoughby Residents Association (“WRA”) is hosting an All Candidates’ Meeting (“ACM”) on

WHEN: Thursday, October 3, 2019

TIME: 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

WHERE: 20097 72nd Ave, Langley, BC (Shepherd of the Valley Church auditorium)

WHO: Well Willoughby has not one, but TWO federal ridings: Langley-Aldergrove and Cloverdale-Langley so you can come ask questions of federal leaders in general (which are already accumulating) or of a particular person.

Once again, the Willoughby Residents Association is pleased to present an All Candidates’ Meeting.  The suggested donation will be $5 or more (cash only, we will have no change), as your pocket book permits.  If you are a resident of WIlloughby, however, we will also give you a membership form with that.

The format will be written submissions done at the door or you can download the form here and email the entire form to willoughby.residents.assn@gmail.com.  Paid, voting members will get a form sent in advance for early submission.

While the focus of the #ACM2019 will be on Willoughby, everyone is welcome to attend whether you are a Willoughby resident or not.   This is your town, your federal representatives; come ask those questions! This is your chance to find out about Retirement issues, Federal health and Pharmacare, housing and transportation. Veterans – your opportunity to find out how you would be represented! How about immigration policies? Tuition costs? How do your prospective representatives feel about climate change? Carbon tax? Child care? Guns? Do you know? Do they have solutions? What do they think the issues around employment and employment insurance are? How do they feel about the changes for NAFTA? And what federal election would be complete without the Pipeline?

The WRA is an apolitical grassroots organization.   Why do we do an ACM?  Because we care about our community and hope by doing so, we can provide the opportunity for public engagement.

Entrance will be first-come first-seated, doors will open at 6:30 pm and as we learned last year, the venue is limited in size. We will also be live streaming on our FaceBook site.

Please join us in learning more about the people with whom you wish to entrust your tax dollars.

We have had confirmation of attendance from the following candidates:

John Aldag   Kaija Farstad
Rae Banwarie   Leon Jensen
    Natalie Cudmore
    Stacey Wakelin
    Alex Joehl

Our next delegation: Monday, July 8, 2019

Join us on Monday July 8, 2019 at 7pm at the Township of Langley Hall. We are discussing signage at playing fields and have an every increasingly beautiful PowerPoint presentation. And who doesn’t love a PowerPoint presentation? We have diagrams and pictures and other fun stuff to learn about Willoughby.

What do we need? We need YOU – come support the WRA by showing up and letter the TOL know we are here and active. We look forward to seeing you on Monday and don’t forget to come say hi and let us know you’re here!

Annual 2019 Willoughby Survey

It is once again time for the annual Willoughby community survey. We take your anonymous responses and put together a presentation for the Township of Langley, to let them know how the residents see things. This year, you can either complete the survey manually by downloading a paper copy here: https://willoughbyresidents.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/2019-WRA-survey-final-1.pdf

You can fax that back to us at 778-372-4253 or there are other fun ways to drop it off to us listed on the survey either through the website here:

Or for even more fun, you can complete this survey online:

Create your own user feedback survey

Either electronically or paper, if you choose to not be anonymous and complete the contact information, your name will be entered into a draw for a coffee card which will be presented at our AGM.

Please post this everywhere and forward to all your neighbours. Thank you in advance for your participation in our event.
