Tory Mark Warawa returns to serve Langley-Aldergrove

Liberal John Aldag takes Cloverdale-Langley City

LANGLEY (NEWS 1130) – Conservative Mark Warawa is back for another term in Langley-Aldergrove, while an unexpected candidate is taking the first-ever seat in Cloverdale-Langley City.

Warawa says despite a change of government, he will be an MP who holds Prime Minister-elect Justin Trudeau accountable.

“I don’t want him raising our taxes. I don’t want him running deficits. I don’t want him changing the laws of Canada to make it worse.”

He admits he’s disappointed over the Liberals’ nation-wide win.

“There are a lot of incredible people that have served Canada well that didn’t get re-elected. That’s disappointing. But we have to respect the decision that Canadians made.”

While the new riding of Cloverdale-Langley City was expected to go to Conservative Dean Drysdale, the Liberals’ John Aldag has taken that area’s first seat in a surprise victory.
