Letters to the Editor

Take pride in your community

I have read with interest all of the letters that have been posted regarding the amount of garbage around Surrey.

I too, am a volunteer with the city parks and find that certain members of the community simply discard their garbage on the streets or into the nearest bush. Is it really that difficult to hold onto garbage until it can be disposed of properly?

I will say that I don’t think there are enough bins around so that the public can easily dispose of their garbage. That aside, people need to take pride in where they live and contribute to make there communities a better place to live.

We live in a beautiful country but cannot fully enjoy its beauty because of the mess on our streets, graffiti plastered on walls and the poor condition of our roads.

I have sent several e-mails to the mayor expressing my concerns but nothing appears to be happening.

I am pleased to see that many people in Surrey have the same feelings as myself.

The question is what will be done to improve the living conditions of our city?
