15-point plan to fight crime in Surrey

Below is what I believe to be a common sense 15-point plan to fight crime. 1) Hire new Surrey RCMP police officers to keep pace with population growth and the needs of the city. 2) The Surrey RCMP force needs to be diverse and representative of the community it serves to build trust and integrity with the population. 3) Surrey needs to compare the number of police officers per capita with other comparable cities in Canada and around the world. An analysis of cities that have low crime rates needs to be completed and similar strategies can be applied...

A new political structure for the City of Surrey (The Royal Canadian Principality of Surrey)

“Mr. Alex Sangha was in attendance and presented Council with his proposal for the future of Surrey as a modified ward/riding system. Mr. Sangha commented on the rapid growth of Surrey and outlined the need for a ward/riding system. He added that he has provided Public Affairs with a copy of a document he has prepared supporting this system. Mr. Sangha advised that he has recently returned from Kent, England, where he has researched the Ward system in operation. He went on to discuss the benefits of a ward/riding system, and pointed out that without such a system, it...

OPINION: Walking the Whalley Strip

I live in a beautiful relatively new glass tower adjacent to King George Skytrain. It’s a Concord Pacific development. My building has a concierge, games room, movie theatre, bowling alley, fully-equipped gym, steam room, among other amenities. Holland Park, SFU Surrey, and Central City Mall are all across the street. I have a secure underground parking spot in the heart of the new Surrey City Centre. I basically have been living in my own protected bubble for the last couple of years. I decided to step out of my comfort zone recently to discover the neighbourhood and get into...

Tap into youth and nurture the next big idea!

Many people argue that the best way to help someone and improve their quality of life is to give them a job. This may be true, however, I would also argue that one of the best ways to help someone is to teach them and give them the skills and resources to become their own boss. Most people would agree that we need to have a healthy private sector to support government programs and services. So, how can we nurture and develop our private sector? We can tap into the skill, talent, creativity, and innovation of our youth to...

Five great men and women that I have actually met in my life!

Why do people come into our lives?  Is it random? Or was it meant to be?  For some reason I have always believed that people cross paths for a reason.  The interaction could be positive or negative or seem meaningless. I believe in fate to a certain degree.  Maybe I was meant to learn something or be inspired or maybe the encounter was designed to plant a seed in my mind of some idea of sorts.  I realize this sounds ridiculous to some, however, there is plenty written in philosophy books about there being a grand plan or design...

Surrey is the second largest city in British Columbia and by 2041 it is expected that another 300,000 residents will be joining our neighbourhoods. One of the top questions from Surrey residents is, “How are we all going to get around?” We want to know what will happen to our roadways and the infrastructure. And we are concerned that if something isn’t put in place soon, we’ll not only be… read more ❯

Crescent Beach is a unique landmark, a popular destination among residents of Surrey and surrounding areas, and a community with an extensive history. Because of where it’s situated, there have always been changes to its shoreline and beaches from natural forces. The first dyke at Crescent Beach was constructed in 1913 and since then other layers of protection have been added. However, due to… read more ❯
