Roses and Rotten Tomatoes (July 6, 2018)

  • A truck load of rotten tomatoes to those who whine about how the city spent $8,500 on a rainbow crosswalk. We all know that just because you said “no offense” doesn’t mean you’re not saying something offensive, and just because you said there’s nothing wrong with gay people doesn’t make you less a bigot. Canada has been known to be a multi-cultural society that is friendly and accommodating minorities. The rainbow crosswalk poses an opportunity to educate your kids about being more aware and accepting of others’ sexual orientation, which is valuable and priceless. If you think your personal 1.6-cent tax money isn’t worth all that, then shame on you.
  • Roses to Mayor Hepner about Surrey’s rainbow crosswalk. I understand the people’s feelings on price but for us LGBTQ+ in Surrey and others, it should be bringing smiles compared to all the problems we’ve had here in our city lately — young people being shot at the end of a road a couple weeks ago, a coach/nurse shot outside his home, etc. Happy Pride Surrey and go, LGBT, go.
  • Roses to my son’s ball hockey team for winning the Surrey championship. Their hard work, effort and dedication was fulfilling to watch. Rotten tomatoes to the few players on the other team who started fights at the end of the final game and got some of our players suspended, causing our team to miss going to the provincial tournament. I hope that they receive repercussions for their actions.
  • Truck loads of beautiful red roses to the wonderful, compassionate and caring people at the Breast Health Clinic at the Jim Pattison Pavilion in Surrey. Special truckloads of red roses to Dr. M.K. Sidhu, Dr. S. Cader and Dr. R. Miam for the quick discovery and removal of this heart-wrenching disease and the quick post-surgery procedures. Thank you, all of you — you are all AWESOME. I’ll never forget the kindness, compassion and friendship shown to me. My family and I thank you!
