Roses and Rotten Tomatoes (Sept. 23, 2021)

Our weekly collection of compliments and complaints sent in by readers

• Roses to the new Surrey Police Service for staying resilient. Keep going forward and pay no attention to the small vocal minority of troublemakers.

• Rotten tomatoes to the drivers in Fraser Heights who disregard stop signs, signaling, pedestrians and cyclists. It’s high time police got involved. Because they (RCMP) are nowhere to be found, tons of rotten tomatoes to them as well. It’s interesting that they are never present when you need them the most. The same can be said about Highway 1 drivers who drive over the speed limit and go unpunished. Because there is no enforcement, people who obey the rules suffer continuously.

• A big bag full of selfish tomatoes go out to the man who told me to ride my bike in the bike lane. You don’t own the sidewalk!

• Bunches of roses to the two South Asian men who stepped in to help my son and his friends avoid a fight at Guildford Town Centre last Sunday. It’s nice to know that people still care enough to get involved.

• Roses to Surrey Mayor Doug McCallum, who has set a gold standard in fulfilling election promises. Keep up the good work.

• Rotten tomatoes to the person who wrote that radar traps are a money grabbing thing. Um no, they’re there to stop speeders who put others’ lives in danger. I do agree that they shouldn’t be used for the enforcement of passports.

• Rotten tomatoes to the National Police Federation for sticking its nose in Surrey’s business. The provincial government signed off on the Surrey Police Service, so it is a done deal and there’s no turning back. Mind your own business and start focusing more on creating a better work environment for all your members in the RCMP.

• Roses to people who feel ambushed by others who tell them who to vote for in elections. Who you vote for is nobody’s business but your own. It’s important that you elect candidates whom you feel best represent you. Always listen to your instincts and vote your conscience.
