Jansen hosts religious freedom discussion in Langley

The Conservative candidate organized the recent event

A town hall on religious freedom in Canada was held by the Conservative candidate for the Cloverdale-Langley City federal riding.

Tamara Jansen hosted the event in late May in Langley, with Saskatchewan MP Kelly Block, Inderjeet Singh of UBC and Paul Rowe of Langley’s TWU.

“Lately we have seen decisions being made across Canada that are clearly an erosion of our basic rights to freedom of conscience and freedom of association,” said Tamara Jansen. “We need to stand up against this kind of intolerance and ensure that Canada remains a place of true inclusion.”

More than 50 people attended the discussion, said Jansen.

She will be running against Liberal MP John Aldag, who has held the Cloverdale-Langley City seat since the 2015 election.
