Activist makes run for Langley Township council

Stacey Wakelin is planning a foray into local politics.

A Langley activist and event organizer will run for a spot on the Township council this fall.

Stacey Wakelin said the decision to run was a recent one.

She’s been in the public spotlight recently as founder of B.C. Parents for Inclusivity, which she said opened her eyes to the needs of the community.

A Willoughby resident, she noted that the roads there are a concern, as is development generally.

“Are we certain that we’re doing it in the most beneficial way?” she said.

Wakelin said that she has no intention of forming or joining a slate of other candidates.
