Monday May 21st, we had a great time participating in the May Day Parade in Fort Langley. There was a HUGE turnout all along Glover. I got to shake hands with many people, and I got about a thousand high fives from kids lining the route. I was expecting a frosty welcome, as this was my first major public event as the Liberal Candidate, and the Liberal Party hasn't been particularly popular in Langley.
However, it couldn't have been farther from the truth. Except for one grumpy old farmer from Saskatchewan, everyone was very supportive. I heard
"Way to go!"
"Stick it to Ottawa!"
"You've got my vote!"
"Gray, what the hell are you doing in the Parade?" Joe Williams, a friend from L.S.S. who I hadn't seen in ages happened to be on 88th with his young son.
We passed out 600 invitations to a Barbeque on June 16th, and anyone interested in federal politics (Jordan Bateman are you reading this?) is invited.
24182 80th Ave. Langley B.C.
Please RSVP to (604) 961-0934 so we can have an idea of how much food to have handy.
