Langley City Council is Heading to Ottawa

Some of the most significant challenges facing Langley City and other Canadian municipalities will require support and collaboration with the federal government. Langley City recently applied for funding from the federal government's Housing Accelerator Fund but was denied funding.

We know that one of the best ways to get support from the federal government is to meet with local MPs in person and with other federal ministers, public servants, and members of all political parties.

Given the urgent need for federal investment in housing, infrastructure, and cultural amenities, Langley City Council is heading to Ottawa April 16-19 to advocate for our community.

We have meetings arranged with MPs of all political stripes and staff members of various federal ministries and organizations. However, we've had trouble setting up a meeting with Federal Housing, Infrastructure, and Communities Minister Sean Fraser.

We thought we'd send him this personalized, positive video request, which we've posted on our social media channels. I hope we get the opportunity to meet with him.
