• Rotten tomatoes to Chief Lipinski of Surrey Police Service. At the Sept. 11 city council meeting, he could not seem to come up with a “yes” or “no” answer to Coun. Rob Stutt’s queries.

• Roses to Christian Life Assembly Langley for donating land and B.C Housing for building housing. How about more churches meeting the challenge? For that, we will send more roses.

• A bed full of red roses to the provincial government for finally breaking ground for the new Cloverdale hospital, but a hospital full of rotten tomatoes for the new completed date of 2029, with the opening in 2030. What will the population be in Surrey in 2030? Hospitals now (2023) are closing emergency wards, postponing surgeries and sending patients to the U.S. for treatment due to lack of staff. Where will the staff come from to accommodate the many patients? Many questions that need answers.

• Roses to parents who watched the documentary W5 called Hooked if they are concerned about how much time their teen is playing video games.

• Rotten tomatoes to the same people who continue to water their lawn though it is prohibited – and they know it is. What is so wrong with you that you think that this is OK?

• Rotten tomatoes to BC Ferries. First, you cancel my reservation and charge full fare at the ticket booth. Then you promised to refund the difference within four weeks, but took six. Now you’re refusing to cover the interest charged by the credit card company? Keep in mind that we didn’t all receive $50-million grants from the B.C. government this summer!
