Important Township Meeting Today


The Township of Langley will be holding a meeting at the Municipal Facility at around 4pm or 4:30pm today (after Council's in-camera meeting). Council and mayor have invited UMA Engineering, TransLink and Township staff to talk about the Township's high-level community rail study and the staff's report on said study. Its an open meeting, but not an open forum where the general public will be able to ask questions. But it wouldn't hurt for people to come out in force and show the Township folks that this is an important topic for us all.

We'd like to draw your attention to the comments made online to yesterday's excellent light rail for the Valley article by Brian Lewis. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and check it out. These are ordinary folks from around our area that see the reasonableness of Community Rail. So why don't so many of our leaders not see it? We at SFOT are not "protesters", so we would like to believe that our elected officials really govern their portfolios for our common good. But sometimes we just have to give our heads a shake.
