Re: No change after ‘peeping Tom’ report, July 15.

I am a resident of Surrey close to the new South Surrey Grandview Heights pool. I use the new pool with my nine-month-old daughter.

This article quoted, “The facility meets or exceeds all building code and Fraser Health requirements.”

I’m pretty sure the swoosh roof design was above and beyond ‘requirements,’ so why make the changing and showering facilities to basic requirements only if other parts of the facility were made to exceed them?

The women’s-only change rooms do not allow for someone to shower privately, which is preferred by most women.

Another point in the article mentioned that this facility is keeping with trends around the world. Swimming topless is also a common trend on other parts of the world, should we do that too?

As for the no-cellphone policy with strict enforcement – I have had my cell out in the change area and not been told about this. I barely ever see staff monitoring the area.

I just wanted to let (city officials)know that I am shocked and disappointed that you could show this much disregard for another woman being violated and not change anything to prevent future events like this.
