Councillor Bruce Hayne quits Surrey First civic party
Global is reporting that "With just months to go before Surrey residents go to the polls for a civic election, there’s a major shakeup in the local political scene. Surrey Coun. Bruce Hayne has resigned from Surrey First, the civic party that swept the city’s council in the 2014 elections and which is led by sitting mayor Lind Hepner. Hayne will sit as an independent until the fall elections. He says he’s come to realize his goals don’t align with the party, and that he’s disappointed that there hasn’t been more consultation with the public on issues such as public safety, development and transit." Three cheers. Maybe he's a keeper.
Rats leaving a sinking ship. Did someone say train wreck?
