Re: "McCallum and Rasode promise to axe city add-ons," the Now.
It’s interesting that only now, after an article appeared in the National Post of Nov. 7 about Barinder Rasode’s "Campaign to fix Surreyâ€ [with the help of a cop next door], your newspaper comes up with the story of add-ons or "severance payments."
But why did nobody ever write about that before, although it’s been going on since 2008? And who are the lucky ones who voted 7-2 to enrich themselves with taxpayer’s money for up to 12 years — in case they would not be voted in anymore? So, how many councillor salaries is the city actually paying — besides the eight ones decorating their new castle [city entertainment hall] in North Surrey?
No wonder why the city is in debt with all the extravagance going on. Could it be that they are also the ones who have been ‘brainwashing’ the provincial government doing the same? Because,
didn’t the provincial government MLAs all vote in favour — just before the last election — to give themselves also some sort of severance payment in case they would be defeated at the polls?
And what else are those council members and their staff trying to brainwash the people, the steeple, with maybe through their WiFi [glittering stuff] or — Operation Blue Beam, which seems to be going on in Surrey and B.C. for some time?
