Roses and Rotten Tomatoes

Rotten tomatoes to the Pride’ers who insist on pushing the envelope regarding flying the pride flag outside of city hall. It’s nothing against your flag, it’s a policy that allows for the Canadian, B.C. and Surrey official flags to be flown only, so there is no special treatment to fly flags of any particular special interest group, ever. Why do they think they are more special, and the flag rules that apply to all groups don’t apply to them? It’s not homophobic, it’s fair.

Bushel of rotten tomatoes to Linda Hepner for already trashing the her opponent. We have had enough, princess. Spending and waste, new city hall and you still can’t walk safely in that part of town or anywhere for that matter.

Please send a Cloverdale Rec.

Center full of the most rotten, mouldy tomatoes you can find to our out-going mayor and her planners for the disastrous strawberry tea she had for July 1st.

We drove all the way from Ladner and were registered, and all we got was a cup of tea because they ran out of cake. Our table had six people and only two got cake. The saddest part was, one lady was just a new Canadian. Only in “Surrey” you say? What was the point of registering in advance? We guess not enough was left over from the $95 million city hall to buy cake for all who attended, but maybe this is a good way to remember her – on her way out.

After spending a wonderful day at Crescent Beach with our young family, I would like to send a large bunch of rotten tomatoes to all the people who stupidly blocked in a whole row of cars!

And thankfully, one happy note to end on: Roses to Dr. Peter and all his staff at Surrey Animal Hospital. They saved our kitty and didn’t put us in the poor house. They truly care about their four-legged and two-legged clients.
