OUR VIEW: Clean up your act, Surrey MP

Liberal MP Randeep Sarai’s BBQ left a mess in Holland Park. He has since removed it

Surrey MP Randeep Sarai found out the hard way that Surrey residents expect their leaders to be, um, spotless. Clean, not to mention tidy.

To his credit, the Liberal MP even pressed his family into cleaning up the trash strewn about and overflowing from trash cans in Holland Park from his barbeque party on Saturday after people complained about the unsightly mess, and unsightly it was.

Hey, what are you going to do when you’ve got to catch a flight to Ottawa, right?

If Mr. Sarai didn’t understand before this – though he no doubt did – he must now be acutely alive to the fact that voters understandably and necessarily hold their elected officials to a higher standard.

A standard he clearly didn’t meet in Holland Park.
