City Q15: 20 Questions for Langley City Council candidates

 

Randy Caine (for Mayor)– No. Bylaws prohibiting arcades and teens dances has only served to send an unwelcoming message to our youth. 

Dave Hall – No, but how much is enough? The Timms may address some recreation concerns, the City does provide some social support through Youth services housed at City hall. There is a continued need for expanded “outreach” and certainly there is a void identified for youth homelessness.

Nathan Pachal – No. The City of Langley needs to work with the school board and other community organizations to make sure that this City is delivering the right programs that support young people.

Carla Robin – No. It does take a City to raise a child. Council needs to do more to connect directly with the youth and various organizations in the community to figure out how to meet their changing needs outside of what the education system can provide. 

Val van den Broek – No – there’s nothing for youths to do in the City besides going to Timms & unfortunately most parents don’t want to bring their kids there because they’re scared to because of the area & the facility itself being so old.
