Surrey Candidate Survey Results | 2022 Municipal Election

In this year's Surrey municipal election, there are 8 candidates for mayor and 56 candidates for council. Surrey electors will go to the polls to elect 1 mayor and 8 councillors.

We reached out to candidates with publicly available contact information. The survey opened on September 13th, with responses accepted until September 21st, and no responses were accepted afterwards.

The survey consisted of six multiple choice questions to find out what candidates support. We also asked candidates three long answer questions.


The long answer questions were:

  1. What have you done, or will you do to advocate in support of active transportation infrastructure in your city and why?
  2. What piece of bike infrastructure is needed next in your city?
  3. HUB Cycling has released a Cycling Platform. Which focus areas and points do you endorse, and which ones do you disagree with?

The table below show answers to the multiple choice questions.
