Conservative leader Andrew Scheer coming to Surrey for townhall meeting

The free business events are being organized by Surrey Board of Trade ahead of the federal election

Conservative Party leader Andrew Scheer is making a stop in Surrey next month, as part of a new “Business Townhall Meeting” series ahead of the 43rd federal election.

Hosted by Surrey Board of Trade, the series intends to feature each of the four federal political party leaders. The business group says attendees will have a chance to ask questions directly.

“The purpose of the Business Townhalls are to create a unique opportunity for Surrey’s business community to interact with leaders of each of the political parties, that are wanting to make economic decisions for businesses,” said Anita Huberman, CEO of Surrey Board of Trade.
