Langley Advance election coverage

Election signs spring up around Langley

The local debates may not happen until this October.

Election signs are starting to pop up around the two Langley ridings, but different local bylaws mean different quantities of signs.

In Langley Township, signs are allowed on the sides of roads, subject to not blocking the sightlines of cars or pedestrians.

In Langley City, there are only two spots where candidates from the Cloverdale-Langley City riding can put up signs – on 200th Street under the BC Hydro transmission towers, and along the side of the Langley Bypass next to the Salvation Army’s Gateway of Hope.

The Gateway may talk to candidates about exactly how many signs they can put up, said executive director Jim Coggles, but those discussions haven’t happened yet.

Due to the long campaign, signs could be up for two and a half months.

In the Township, signs must be cleared away by four days after the election, and in the City seven days.

In both communities, local residents can put up signs on their property.

Signs from several local candidates began appearing in Langley this week.

Debates

It will be almost two months before the first scheduled debates of local candidates take place for Langley’s two federal ridings.

The Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce and its co-organizers are tentatively planning a Cloverdale-Langley City debate on Oct. 6, and a Langley-Aldergrove debate on Oct. 8.

Both federal election debates are in partnership with the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board and the Cloverdale-Langley City debate is in concert with the Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce.
