“While I could have spent the day making lots of frantic phone calls, I took the opportunity to reconnect with my family, my community, and the Earth - to remind myself why I went on this adventure to begin with. A group of us helped plant a variety of native plants at Derby Reach in order to create a wildlife corridor that will also function to hold back the invasive blackberry bushes.

Polling stations will be closing at 8 p.m. tonight at which time candidates running in Langley East and Langley will be keeping a close eye on the results as Elections BC begins to tally the votes.

Running for office in this COVD-era election means candidates couldn’t hold traditional gatherings, so we asked all candidates in the Langley and Langley East ridings to share selfies that show how they are spending election night.

Here are photos of the candidates who participated in our invitation to share selfies.
