Last Langley Township Council All Candidates Meeting at Langley Event Center

video

Langley Township Council Election Candidates
This LFP Editor has just had enough of the Green VLN slate-mates in unison parroting their ridiculous deception attempt trying to convince us that  they are Independents yet also a Slate! It becomes even more ludicrous when they line up and repeat this one after another at every debate. So I decided to finally highlight and point out this inane Green VLN slate attempt to word craft and word weave this B.S. to us, the Langley Township voters, in the above very short 47 second video. I hope you find it as amusing as I did.

Banquet Hall at Langley Events Ctre.
At last night's last election event at the Langley Event Center which by-the-way the Green VLN Slate and slate-mates continually criticize, the Langley Township Election candidates had their final public hurrah before this Saturday's election. One by one they introduced themselves and there after mingled with the audience answering individual questions. This event was organized by an election candidate herself, Sonya Paterson. Good job Sonya. Unfortunately there were far too many empty audience seats.  I'm told that the poor weather may have been the issue.

Murray Jones, Suhki Dhami and Kim Richter
There was even a Gang-Green anti-slate protester in attendance who parodied the Gang-Green slate's red stop sign ads. Well known anti Gang-Green VLN slate critic Suhki Dhami wore a  sandwich board imprinted with our own LFP designed Rick Green anti-slate stop sign. He downloaded this from LFP and had it blown up onto the sandwich boards. Very creative Suhki.

This picture of Suhki wearing the sandwich boards almost brought tears to this Editor's eyes! One can only Imagine what emotions Gang-Green must have had tonight upon first seeing Suhki wearing the sandwich boards at the all candidates meet and greet tonight. Pictured wearing the sandwich board is the frequent Green VLN slate critic Suhki Dhami flanked on both sides by two election candidates, Murray Jones and our very own Publisher and Langley Township Council re-election candidate Kim Richter.      By LFP EDITOR

Langley Firefighters Support Mel Kositsky for Mayor & Kim Richter as one of the 8 for Council

The Langley Township Firefighters after extensive research officially published their list that they support for council in Langley Township.Their 4'x8' signs pictured here were sprouting up throughout the Township.
In addition the Firefighters are expected to advertise in the local newspapers as well as drop literature throughout the Township. Before they came to their conclusion the Firefighters had questionnaires that all candidates answered. They also hosted a debate where all the candidates were able to provide their credentials/policies and they also answered  pre-prepared questions that they all got in advance. No ambush there unlike at the three community group's so-called pro Green VLN debate. In addition all the candidates were able to mingle-meet-greet the firefighters and guests at that debate. All the council incumbents except for Councillor Bev Dornan and incumbent Mayor Rick green were endorsed. The Firefighters instead endorsed Mel Kositsky for the Mayor position. New candidates Rebecca Darnell, Michelle Sparrow & Dan Sheel were also endorsed.

Who's Really Playing Dirty Politics? Inappropriate & a Totally Rick Green VLN Partisan Candidate Ambush At Tonight's Mayor Debate By Debate Organizers!

Last night's debate was hosted by three groups: Salmon River Enhancement Society, The Fort Langley Community Association and the new Yorkson Community Association.

There are no words to adequately describe this Editor's disgust at the travesty pretending to be a genuine and legitimate Mayor's Candidate debate held at the Brookswood Secondary school gym. The debate was promoted as a non partisan forum to hear the views of the three Langley Township Mayor candidates on legitimate community concerns: the environment, development and community input to council decisions. The reality was far removed from this description. The event was not a debate but a "Rick Green VLN love-in" by very partisan debate organizers.

While the beginning was innocuous enough with opening statements from the three Mayor candidates, it rapidly disintegrated into a "bash Mel Kositsky and Jack Froese" session as evidenced by the questions posed by the event organizers themselves and their partisan supporters. Every question asked was designed to showcase Rick Green at the expense of Mel and Jack. How sad that legitimate community groups would allow their credibility to be so badly damaged. As a small sample watch the following video.

None Are So Blind As Those Who Will Not See

What amazes this LFP Editor is that formerly rational people, respected people, old friends and political pundits in the Township (who now fervently write in comments to LFP, the Times, etc.) still desperately cling to a seemingly messianic devotion to a Mayor whose true personality and attributes have been revealed time and again over the past three years by several independent consultants,  lawyers and others. Yet these pundits are still willing to throw out the

Kim Richter Hopes Taxpayers Vote Zero-Tolerance on Nov 19th for any Politician Lying while in Public Office

Watch all 3 Videos of Councillors Richter, Fox & Ferguson below here in this LFP posting. These three Councillors had the most significant Council responses to Cllr. Grant Ward's Motion calling for a formal Committee of Inquiry into the complete Mayor Green Brownshack Affair. Mayor Green's response was his standard deflection and attempts to ignore the facts.

At tonight's last council meeting of this Langley Township Council before the election on Nov 19th, Councillor Kim Richter voted against any more money being spent by taxpayers for an inquiry as proposed by Councillor Grant Ward to inquire into the Mayor Green Brownshack fiasco. Council voted 6-2 to defer the decision to the new council to decide on an inquiry. Only Richter & Green voted against the motion. Obviously not for the very same motives! Richter essentially said that the Township taxpayers should be the court of final opinion on Election day November 19th . See her video above and a complete transcript of her speech also below where she specifically said:

"The Lidstone Report concluded the Mayor misled several times. 
The Mayor misrepresented and his actions were dishonest.
The Mayor was caught.
He was punished.
It’s over."
Richter continued:

"Had the Mayor been honest from the outset, not one dime and not one minute of legal time would have been spent on this matter.  ...This matter needs to be left with the electorate for final resolution."

Richter concluded her brief remarks by saying the following:

Why is Mayor Green & his VLN Slate attacking the Langley Events Center?

Staying true to form, Mayor Rick Green continues to promote “misleading information”. Over the past week, he has been running a series of political advertisements in all the local newspapers in support of himself and his Vote Langley Now (“VLN”) Slate. These political ads definitely contain “misleading

Mel Kositsky Kicks Off Mayoralty Campaign - Says: "This election is all about trust. The trust... has been broken. It can never be repaired."

Sunday Oct 30Th at 1 PM and for the rest of the afternoon many people wandered in and out of Councillor Mel Kositsky's new Walnut Grove campaign office on it's grand opening to which the public and politicians at large were invited to. Mel is hoping to beat the rookie Incumbent Mayor Rick Green and the political newcomer/challenger Jack Froese to become the next Mayor of Langley Township in what could well be a tight 3 way race.

Ironically Mayor Green praised Councillor Kositsky before Mel himself announced his intention to challenge Mayor Green. Green said he was running a slate against all the incumbent council except for Mel because he essentially only endorsed and
