Roses and Rotten Tomatoes (Feb. 2, 2018)

Our weekly collection of compliments and complaints sent in by readers

CLICK HERE to send your submissions.Roses to the Surrey first responders who answered a 911 call from my husband on Jan. 17. You hear lots of negatives about Surrey but we are so thankful for the quick response. I was unconscious when the first responders arrived and when I woke up I was surprised to see so many people in my bedroom trying to assess my medical condition. I was taken to the SMH emergency department by ambulance and fast tracked to get the tests needed to determine what caused me to pass out. Thank you so much to my heroes – the operators, dispatchers, drivers, paramedics, firefighters and staff at SMH’s emergency department. Rotten tomatoes to all those people who think it’s great putting your green, blue and black garbage cans at the end of your driveway or at the front of your house – and leave them there all week, every week. It’s not that nice to look at. Brand new homes have little room on the property left for their garbage cans. The city should have a bylaw that the cans must be at least 50 feet from the front of the property or the road side as well, if a corner house. City of Surrey, please do something to improve the scenery in Surrey. Rotten tomatoes to the parents who illegally park on 192nd Street while dropping off and picking up children from Latimer Road Elementary, ignoring the “no stopping” and “no parking” signs. Do you not know that the homeowners are expected to maintain the boulevards in front of their property? The cost of repairing the mud pits you leave behind is not minimal. You are setting a very poor example for your children who are learning that laws don’t apply to them, if they happen to be inconvenient. You should be working with your school and district to find a solution to your parking problems. It should not be the problem of the neighbours!
