Mayor's Report

July 26, 2021

Good afternoon everyone and welcome.

On July 14, I visited Lucas, a 12-year-old 4-H member who is raising market steer on his Aldergrove farm. Lucas’ steer Combi achieved the title of Grand Champion Market Steer at the club show. We are very proud of Lucas and his achievement!

Attended by Council

Councillor Arnason attended an Urban Development Institute webinar on housing supply for affordability on June 21. The Canada-British Columbia expert panel spoke about their policy recommendations including enforceable housing targets, a policy key to unlocking the much-needed supply of all forms of housing.

Councillor Richter joined the Muslim community for Eid al-Adha prayers on July 20. The Township is a diverse, welcoming community and we are proud to be home to so many different cultures. Thank you to the Muslim community for the invitation. We hope enjoyed your celebration and time spent with family and friends.

On July 21, Councillors Richter and Whitmarsh attended the Mother’s Against Drunk Driving smashed car event to raise awareness about the tragic consequences of drinking and driving. Drunk driving has no place in our community and we thank MADD Canada for brining this important display to Langley residents.

Councillor Long attended a meeting with Fraser Health on July 23 regarding updates on their response to the COVID-19 pandemic and to discuss areas where we can work collectively to respond to the crisis.

As this is our last meeting before the summer break, I’d like to wish everyone a safe and healthy summer. See you all in September!
