Since when has Surrey become BC Hydro’s works yard – a place to store power poles?

Well, in front of my property it has! Just over three weeks ago.

Someone dropped off the first pole on the grass next to the road.

Last week, they came back and dropped another one on the other side of my driveway.

I have called the city but heard nothing back.

If BC Hydro is doing work here, is it too much to ask them to drop the pole off just a day or two before it is being used and if they are dropping two, put them beside each other?

I believe there was a time long ago, when BC Hydro may have asked us, or at least told us why the power poles were being left there and when we could expect them gone, but those days are gone!

We are just their revenue source, people of no importance.
