Langleys’ mayors, top cop are headed for the hoosegow

‘Bail’ proceeds from Thursday event will be donated to Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley, happening in September

The Langleys’ two mayors and their chief of police are going to jail.

The three Langley leaders will be locked up for a good cause on Thursday, June 23 from noon to 2 p.m. at Willowbrook Shopping Centre.

The only way that  Township Mayor Jack Froese, City Mayor Ted Schaffer and Langley RCMP Supt. Murray Power will be released from jail is if members of the public post bail for them.

All the proceeds will go to this year’s Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley event, which helps fund pediatric cancer research.

That includes developing gentler treatments to help children live better, fuller lives after cancer treatment as well as helping families going through it.

People who would like to see any of the three sit in jail a little longer, can also donate money for that.

The Tour de Valley ride takes place Sept. 22 and Sept. 30, with several Langley officers cycling for the cause.
