Now is the time for Surrey's own Police Force
In February the BC Government announced that "Mike Farnworth, Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General, has granted approval to create a municipal police board for the City of Surrey - the next stage in the plan to transition from the RCMP to a municipal police department."
Notwithstanding that fact, the Union representing the RCMP is still running paid ads on facebook trying to overthrow the democratic will of the residents. F*ck off. I live here. I say it's time. We had an election. You lost. Get over it. It's time to move forward and address crime. If you had arrested the drug dealers out of Shakerz this might not have been necessary. You refused so it's time for us to get a police force that is accountable to the citizens that pay their wages. Finish them.
The Union that currently represents the Surrey RCMP does not care about crime in Surrey or Surrey's tax dollars at work. They only care about THEIR Union dues. That is all they care about. There is no reason the Union that represents the RCMP in Surrey cannot represent Surrey's Municipal police force. That is what they should be working on. Surrey is the largest city in Canada without it's own police force. We all need to move forward.
