Newton Rally



There was a noon rally at the Newton Exchange today in Surrey in response to the increased crime and the murder of a hockey mom in the area. This one was planned by a regular citizen who said it was the first time she ever planned a rally. Several local residents are concerned about the increased crime in their neighbourhood.



Many local residents expressed their concerns about the cost of the new extravagant city hall and think it's a waste of tax dollars compared to proper policing.



I spoke with Harry Baines and I think I saw Barinder Rasode trying to be inconspicuous.



This stalwart longtime resident of Newton sporting the latest Surrey Shirts design had a lot of concerns about political corruption and was very informed. Surrey Strong is a positive message from people who care about their community.

    1. Just a coincidence. This is a really good guy and the Surrey Shirts guy is not affiliated at all.

    2. Understood. It's a cool lettering style and all, just unfortunately used by that one high profile group....

    3. I understand it's the same as the Boston Red Sox and emulates the Boston Strong message. He's got lightening bolts on his web site too but that from the old Kiss Army thing.

  3. I live only a block away from Newton Exchange. My wife has been terrified to walk in the neighbourhood ever since the murder. Nice to see people coming together, too bad it took something so horrific to activate our interest in our community. The police have been very present too. I haven't seen so many in the year we've lived there. They came to our door and talked to me, asking if I'd seen anything. I asked them questions about person's of interest or leads. The officer told me that he couldn't talk about what they had but said, "These things usually get solved." I take that to mean, "we don't have squat".
