Annemarie Vandergriendt (right) and Janice Visscher (left) were among 500 participants to line up along 200 Street between 62 Avenue and Fraser Highway on Saturday to form a Life Chain. The protest, organized by Langley Pro-Life, is to promote saying no to abortion. “It was extremely successful,” said organizer Jaclyn Penninga. “We were very happy with the chance to stand on the street and engage people in dialogue.”
