Langley Advance 10 Questions: How did your candidates answer?

All nine candidates in Langley and Langley East responded to our survey prior to the B.C. election.

Every election, the Langley Advance surveys our candidates on a range of issues, asking for yes or no (or don’t know) answers. We also allow our prospective MLAs to answer at length. Click the links below to find individual candidates and see their long answers, or check your copy of the Langley Advance and study the grid on page A3 to see who said yes and who said no on various questions.
