Mayor's Report

October 7, 2019

On Wednesday, October 2, I attended a Breakaway Session at the North Langley Community Church. The theme was #Adulting, with discussion focussed on owning and embracing the responsibilities that come our way, and the importance of being involved and making a difference where we live.

That same day I attended the Mauser Packaging Solutions safety recognition event. This company, which is located in Gloucester Industrial Estates, has 160 employees and achieved its Occupational Safety Standard of Excellence certification. Well done!
Thursday, October 3 was the IAFF Local 4550 2019 Badge Ceremony for four new Fire Department recruits. Cllr. Davis, Cllr. Arnason, Cllr. Woodward and Cllr. Ferguson were in attendance as well.

Saturday, October 4 was the Inauguration Ceremony for new Trinity Western University President Dr. Mark Husbands. We welcome Dr. Husbands to his new position and look forward to our continued relationship with the University. Cllr. Ferguson also attended.

Saturday was also a fundraiser for Mi Casa Spa in Fort Langley, and the Emergency Preparedness Fair was held at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. A lot of great information on what each of us needs to do to prepare for an emergency was provided by the Langley Emergency Program, first responders, and other organizations, and guests including both Mayors could participate in an earthquake simulation.
