September 2, 2021
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
White Rock, BC – Today, Kerry-Lynne Findlay, Conservative Party Candidate for South Surrey–White Rock, announced that a Conservative government will commit to repairs and upgrades to White Rock Pier.
“Canada’s Conservatives will end the delays and get shovels in the ground on long-awaited upgrades to the White Rock Pier,” said Findlay. “We understand how important this pier is to the community of White Rock and a Conservative government will prioritize projects that secure our recovery, create jobs, and improve the quality of life of Canadians.”
A Conservative government will upgrade and reinforce the entire pier after part of the pier was damaged in a December 2018 storm. Though the damaged section has been repaired, a Conservative government would extend the upgrades to the entire foundations of the pier.
The White Rock Pier is Canada’s longest pier and is a significant tourist attraction for the region. Many of the shoreline businesses rely upon tourism for their livelihoods.
A Conservative government will also work with the province, municipalities, and First Nations communities across British Columbia to invest in infrastructure projects based on their local priorities.
“I’m thrilled a Conservative government will recognize the importance of the White Rock Pier to our community,” said Findlay. “This shovel-ready project will encourage more people to explore our region and fuel a strong economic recovery for White Rock.”
Secure the future, help elect Erin O’Toole’s Conservatives and get Canada’s economy back on track.
