Re: Coalition to help rid Surrey of Portables, Sept. 6.

Am I reading this right? A coalition that includes the Surrey Board of Trade and real estate developers want to help rid Surrey of portable classrooms because the schools are so overcrowded?

The Surrey Board of Trade has been a major supporter and cheerleader of growth-at-any-cost Surrey First, which has controlled city council without any opposition for years.

The reason so many Surrey students learn in portables is because of this pro-real estate development council, who must know full well that the endless residential projects they approve have no school space for students.

If this group really cared about Surrey students and not continued reckless unbridled development, they would call for a change of leadership in Surrey.
