Election info: Get to know your Surrey and White Rock candidates

City of Surrey, City of White Rock: There are a number of opportunities to voters to hear from and question those running for council

Business groups and a residents association are hosting all-candidates meetings in Surrey and White Rock, in time for the Nov. 15 civic elections.

And while White Rock’s TV mayoral debate was cancelled – due to the lone challenger’s precondition of having the questions and topics in advance – Surrey’s seven mayoral candidates are scheduled to be broadcast on Shaw at 10 p.m. on Oct. 30.


The Surrey Board of Trade is hosting an all-candidates councillor dialogue – co-hosted with the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board – at 6 p.m., Oct. 29 at Eaglequest Golf Course (7778 152 St.).

An SBOT luncheon featuring mayoral candidates – co-hosted with the South Surrey & White Rock Chamber of Commerce – is set for noon, Nov. 4, at the course.

Both sessions are free, but attendees are asked to register in advance (call 604-581-7130).

An all-candidates meeting for all Surrey hopefuls is being hosted by the Semiahmoo Residents Association, from 6:30-9 p.m., Nov. 10 at the Rotary Fieldhouse (14600 Rotary Way).

The Downtown Surrey Business Improvement Association is hosting meetings on Oct. 23 and Oct. 27 at SFU Surrey (13450 102 Ave.). Visit www.downtownsurreybia.com for details.

Two other Surrey meetings are also planned: 6 p.m. Oct. 28 at Shannon Hall in Cloverdale (for all candidates), and 7 p.m. Oct 30 at Strawberry Hill Hall (for mayors).

White Rock

In White Rock, the BIA and Fraser Valley Real Estate Board have booked the White Rock Community Centre for an all-candidates meeting on Thursday, Oct. 30.

That meeting is to get underway at 7 p.m. The community centre is located at 15154 Russell Ave.
