'Hood under siege?
The cover of today's Vancouver Province reads: 'Hood under siege referring to another shooting in Surrey, this time in Clayton Heights. OK so they're going for the drama.
Clayton Heights is not the hood. Abbotsford is not the hood. These are the suburbs where wealthy drug dealers can afford to live. The hood is where the rest of us who can't afford to live in those neighbourhoods live.
Nevertheless, the murders have started to spike again.
The Surrey Now ran a follow up article stating: Surrey neighbours stand by their 'hood'.
