For those interested in Langley politics, there are few better brains to pick than those of local newspaper editors.
Langley Advance editor Bob Groeneveld, along with Langley Times editor Frank Bucholtz, will take part in a conversation with Kristine Simpson, the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce president. The event is Nov. 12, as part of the chamberâ€™s monthly dinner meeting.
This event is a first for the chamber, said executive director Lynn Whitehouse.
It was inspired by one of the most popular events at the B.C. Chamber of Commerceâ€™s annual meeting â€“ The Cutting Edge of the Ledge.
It features seasoned legislative reporters on provincial politics.
With civic elections just days away, the chamber wanted to host an event about politics, both recent and historical.
â€œItâ€™s going to be a conversation, very informal,â€ said Whitehouse.
Simpson will have a number of questions and topics.
â€œItâ€™s going to be a very friendly thing,â€ said Whitehouse.
The editors have decades of experience covering politics.
â€œI think politics in Langley has always been a nasty business,â€ said Groeneveld.
With two Langleys, thereâ€™s always something going on, he said. When the City is quiet, the Township will take up the slack or vice versa.
The dinner is at the Cascades Casino ballroom starting at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $35 for chamber members and $50 for non-members.
