Candy Canes & Coal (Dec. 14, 2018)

A Christmas-time edition of our popular weekly collection of compliments and complaints sent in by readers

CLICK HERE to send your submissions.

  • Intersections full of coal to the traffic department that regulates the traffic lights at our major intersections like 152nd and 88th and 152nd and Fraser Highway. The left-turn signals appear to allow four cars through legally, and that’s if not too many have come through the opposite turn light while it was red. I sure don’t know the answer but seems to me if all the turn signals were timed to allow another couple of cars through that this could relieve some of the rush-hour congestion and hopefully less impatience and accidents. Think it sure needs some further looking into.
  • Candy canes to people in Surrey who decorate the outside of their homes for all of us to enjoy at Christmas. A big bah hambug (and pile of coal) to those of you who don’t!
  • Coal to people who dump their TVs and garbage throughout the city. Stop being lazy and bring your items to the recycling depot or call the city to come pick up your large items. You should be ashamed of yourself. What are you teaching your children? Please keep Surrey neat and clean.
  • A huge pile of coal to courier companies that just drop off parcels at our front door as if we are not home, when in fact we are. We experienced this the other day. We were both home and when I was leaving the house there was a parcel left at our front door. The driver did not ring our front door bell. Our expensive parcel could have been stolen, especially at this time of year. Also I want to send coal to the people who steal parcels left on front doors. Karma will get you.
  • Coal to our new mayor for axing key projects needed in our growing city. If our budget doesn’t allow for our kids and families from enjoying the wonders of every day life, where is the money for a new and ‘much needed’ expensive police force coming from?
  • Coal to selfish dog owners whose dogs bark all day long. The stressful barking can be heard throughout the neighbourhood. This is an epic lack of consideration.
