Right Neighbourly

Monday afternoon emergency vehicles raced to the White Rock waterfront. A call had come in that a young girl was in trouble in the water off of Kwomais Point between White Rock & Crescent Beach. Once the emergency crews reached the young lady who was in distress they were faced with the task of how to transport her back to the ambulance.

That is where a BNSF freight train came in. The train was flagged down and the ambulance crew and the young lady an ambulance crew were transported back to the boat launch area on the beach.

The young lady was taken to hospital for observation and released.

New Off Leash Dog Park

Location 2955 160 St, Surrey

Wills Brook Park Wills Brook Park opened this weekend. This park is primarily a riparian area, protecting Wills Brook that flows north to the Nicomekl River. The park was acquired during the subdivision and development of the lands to the west. The plan for Wills Brook Park includes an off-leash area for dogs and some connecting paths including a bridge over Wills Brook to connect the dog off-leash area to the new development to the west. We'll also be constructing a path along 160th St to improve the walkability of the neighbourhood.

Hope we win but even if we don't,

I'm proud of our work and our courage.

Community & Coal founder Paula Williams

A FEW THOUGHTS AS OUR HEARING COMES TO A CLOSE:

Our days in court are now finished and I need to take a moment to thank Ecojustice for the thousands of hours they have put into our litigation. What makes the journey with you even better is that you are actually really great people and I know that you believe in the work you have done for us. Thank you Harry, Karen and Fraser and to all of your staff! It has been an honour.

Thank you to Christine Dujmovich for having the courage to stand up as an individual and put your name down as an applicant. This was not an easy decision, I'm sure. Thank you for standing up for what you believe in and for joining us in court.

Also, a huge thank you to Kevin Washbrook and his group, Voters Taking Action on Climate Change, for being so amazing, and also to Dogwood for your unwavering support. So great to have gotten to know all of you.

A huge thank you also to the thousands of people I have met over the last four years who want to see us succeed. Many of you donated to our legal challenge, and others donated by giving us your time and energy. Couldn't have gotten as far as we have without your help. Thank you!

In addition, the Cities of Surrey and New Westminster (who joined us as intervenors in court) have my utmost respect. Thank you for putting yourselves out there Mayor Hepner, Mayor Cote, and Council from both cities. Thank you also for your strong legal team who brought significant insight to our litigation. The efforts of Surrey and New Westminster say a lot about the integrity of both cities because you could have done nothing but instead you chose to take a different route and support your residents. Amazing.

Thank you also to the numerous municipalities, MLAs, MPs, scientist, doctors (especially Dr. Frank James), businesses and environmental groups, as well as the Health Authorities, who all stood up and spoke up. The world needs more of this. Let me repeat that: THE WORLD NEEDS MORE OF THIS.

And now we must wait for the judge to come back with his decision, which could take up to 6 months. Regardless of the outcome, we need to remember that Fraser Surrey Docks originally intended to begin construction of their coal terminal in 2014, and three years later, that construction has yet to start. Realistically, with the way the world is going, it may never be built but only time will tell...

 

PUBLIC SAFETY ALERT

Fraudulent Calls Likely Targeting Seniors


The City of White Rock is warning residents of individuals inquiring about their water consumption, age, whether they live alone and informing them they have won free water testing

White Rock, BC -- The City of White Rock has been alerted by a resident that received a phone call from an individual inquiring about their water consumption and needs. They asked the resident whether she lived alone, her age, and if she showered alone. She received a follow-up call informing her that she had won free water testing and that they will come to her home and take free water samples.

Please be advised that this is likely a scam targeting seniors. Should you get such a call, or if you have received a call like this, please report it to the RCMP. The non-emergency phone number for the White Rock RCMP is 778-593-3600.

Joke Of The Day

While golfing, a handsome senior gentleman accidentally overturned his golf cart late one afternoon.

A very attractive, 40 ish, female golfer, who lives in a villa on the golf course, heard the noise and called out, “Are you OK?”

“I’m OK, thanks,” he replied, as he pulled himself out of the twisted cart.

She said, “Come up to my villa, rest a while, and I’ll help you with the cart later.” The old guy noticed her silky bathrobe was partially open, revealing what appeared to be a very nice figure.

“That’s mighty nice of you,” he answered, “but I don’t think my wife would like it.”

“Oh, come on now!” she insisted. She was so pretty and very, very persuasive. He was weak. “Well, OK,” he finally agreed.

After a couple of Scotch and sodas, he thanked her and said, “I feel a lot better now. But I know my wife is going to be really upset. So I’d better go now.”

“Don’t be silly!” she said with a smile, letting her robe fall slightly more open. “Stay for a while. Your wife won’t know anything…..By the way, where is she?”

He replied, “Still under the cart, I guess"?
