A Surrey city councillor is upset with her city’s leadership in regards to public transit and the implementation of the Surrey Police department.
In a statement released on Tuesday, city councillor Linda Annis gave Surrey Mayor Doug McCallum and his four Safe Surrey councillors a “D” when it came to public transit. On top of that she also gave him an “F” for the proposed Surrey Police Department in her 2019 report card.
“When the mayor ran, the mayor said that he would be able to build skytrains from Surrey Central to Langley for 1.65 billion. Instead he’s only been able to get a third of the way as there will only be four stops.” – Linda Annis, Surrey city coucillor
Annis stated that while there’s growing disappointment about transit, she believes the proposed Surrey Police Department is the single biggest failure to come out of city hall in 2019.
“Right now, we don’t have a firm budget but we don’t know how much the police transition is going to cost,” Annis said. “We also don’t have a good handle on what the actual cost of operating the police department if we go ahead.”
