A rare battle for the NDP nomination in Fort Langley-Aldergrove NDP is scheduled for next Sunday, Nov. 4.

Guest speaker at the meeting will be NDP leader Adrian Dix, who has made many visits to Langley since winning the NDP leadership in 2011.

The meeting takes place at the Steelworkers' Hall at  #202 - 9292 200 Street in Walnut Grove. Doors open at 1:30 p.m., with the meeting beginning at 2 p.m.

The two contenders for the nomination have both run before against incumbent MLA Rich Coleman.  Aldergrove resident Shane Dyson ran in 2005, while Gail Chaddock-Costello, current president of Langley Teachers Association, ran in 2009.

The constituency currently has some 200 accredited members and organizers are expecting a good turnout is in the cards.
