Funding for Fleetwood should light Francis Park

Surrey – The Editor, It’s nice to know that the province has donated $100,000 to the Fleetwood Community Centre.

I believe part of that funding should go towards installing lighting in Francis Park outside the community centre, as there are drug users that hang around in the park at night. There are drug deals going on in Francis Park at night and the disgusting smell of dope travels like a grenade.

It’s obvious that these pushers are up to no good, as they are selling dope to teens and influencing them to make the wrong choices that will land them in serious trouble.

Francis Park is place for families and seniors to enjoy, so these dopes are unwelcome here in Fleetwood.

If the city can install lighting in order to get rid of troublemakers, I’m sure it would help make a difference.

If you live in the area and witness trouble, please do not hesitate to call the police.
