Snow removal should be a priority

City of Surrey was slow clearing streets after recent snowfall, a letter writer says.

The City of Surrey has done a poor job in snow removal. Many streets remained impassable, even on Thursday.

Where were the snow plow trucks when you needed them? On Wednesday, around noon time, when it had stopped snowing, there was still lots of snow on the main roads.

Pattullo Bridge southbound came to a standstill as so many trucks were stuck on King George Boulevard after 128 Street. Why wasn’t the snow removed from King George Boulevard southbound from Pattullo Bridge on Wednesday?

Also, why does the school district choose to keep schools open when no snow removal trucks come to clear the streets around school? So many cars were stuck in the snow on school property.

I think snow removal should be a priority for all schools otherwise please keep the schools closed.
