• An ambulance full of roses to the two female paramedics who came to my place when my wife died on June 7. You were both so compassionate. You kept me company, talking to me and consoling me until my children arrived and were then equally compassionate with my children. Thank you both for helping us all through a very difficult morning. Your kindness will never be forgotten.

• Rotten tomatoes to delivery companies that sign customers up for a monthly fee without their permission. Check your bank statement and you may be surprised like I was.

• Roses to the wonderful RCMP Musical Ride in Cloverdale. The show was amazing and it was a big community event for the whole family and was special for my eight-month-old son.

• Rotten tomatoes to people who lick their fingers clean. Is it so hard to use a napkin?

• Rotten tomatoes to the high cost of living. Rent, food and everything is unaffordable. Take note seniors – roses to government assisted living for having apartments, utilities, and meals all-included. Seniors and people on disability pay 40 per cent of their income to live there. You have money left over for medications and have a nice safe place to live with less stress.

• Roses to people who submit to Roses and Rotten Tomatoes. I just read the latest and I must say I love the attitude displayed by the writers. Keep up the great work and attitude.

• Rotten tomatoes to Coun. David Chesney of White Rock. Shame on you for making a negative comment on a business in your hometown. You are supposed to be there for everyone. You would not get my vote next time.

• Rotten tomatoes to the City of Surrey and the Now-Leader for failing to publish contrary views about 84th Avenue going through Bear Creek Park. That road will see 15,000 vehicles passing through the park daily. Those vehicles will also pass two temples, three access points to elementary schools, a daycare and a recreation centre. No responsible planner would ever do that. Whoever came up with the original density plan did not have this in mind. All parents should have their lawyer on speed dial because this is a disaster waiting to happen. Who gains from this?
