LETTER: In her ivory tower, Hepner continues to be oblivious to Surrey’s needs

The Editor,

I live two blocks from city hall and I go for a walk every day. Here is what I see:

  • Day 1: One block from city hall. Ordered take out dinner. Decided to walk down and pick it up. Was asked by several prostitutes if I had a cigarette. One prostitute asked if I wanted to go in the bush and have sex.

  • Day 2: In city hall plaza. While walking to the bank I cut through city hall plaza where I watched a guy doing drugs in broad daylight.

  • Day 3: Two blocks from city hall. Took my three-year-old grandson to the bike park by Chuck Bailey rec centre. Two men were shooting up drugs with a needle.

  • Day 4: Two blocks from city hall. Right in my apartment parking lot a man was having sex in the front seat of his truck.

I’ve complained to city hall but it falls on deaf ears. Linda Hepner and her cronies work in an ivory tower and couldn’t care less what is happening right around them at their feet.

Garry Pederson, Surrey
