It was a bit of a wet and breezy Saturday morning when I popped into the fish hatchery run by the Nicomekl Enhancement Society. The purpose of my visit was to drop off the $10,800.00 donation raised by the Langley Rotary Clubs in support of their efforts. These guys do a great job! They raise and release some 400 to 500,000 Chinook, Chum and Coho salmon into the Nicomekl. This time of year is busy for them as the salmon have started returning. It’s an amazing process to watch and the Society has a standing offer for any group that wants to come down on any Tuesday, Friday and Sunday from 9:00 to 12:00 AM. It’s a great opportunity for children, business or social groups to get together and find out what a great bunch of volunteers are doing to ensure that our natural beauty continues to thrive in the Township of Langley!

The 2018 election for the Township of Langley is fast approaching. There's a host of great candidates - 3 for Mayor, 23 for Councillor and 7 for School Trustees.
Congratulations to all the candidates that have decided to seek the approval of their fellow citizens in order to guide the community over the next four years. From my experience, it's a very exciting time! I salute you for putting your name forward!
General Voting Day is 20 October 2018 and I look forward to large crowds of Langley residents taking advantage of their democratic rights and voting on that day or at one of the advance voting opportunities that have been established. Remember, these are the people that we are choosing to ensure that our property tax dollars are being spent in a wise and efficient manner. Please take the time to read their biographies and attend some of the many candidate meetings that are taking place during the campaign.
I've dug up a few statistical points from previous elections. Let's see if we can improve on theses numbers. Talk to your family and friends! Let's see if we can double or even triple the numbers!
