We recently moved out of our home in White Rock and were going through a very traumatic experience with the move.
Our new home in the Okanagan fell through, and we could not find another one in such short notice. So we were left to put some of our belongings under a tarp in the driveway so that the owners of the house could start the renovation.
While we were moving things to our storage locker, people were looting our belongings from in front of the garage. They even took my goldfish that we had taken out of the tank in order to move the 50-gallon tank that they were in.
I put what was left under a tarp and put signs on the tarp that said, “Keep Out – Private Property,” as my husband was in the Okanagan trying to secure a house for our family.
And do you think that would stop them? No, it did not. People came back the next day and took more.
We moved to White Rock four years ago after living in Ocean Park for almost 10 years without ever having an issue. My car was broken into our first night in White Rock – and several times after that, along with my husband’s and son’s trucks.
So I say goodbye and good riddance, because if this is the kind of people that live here then I am not proud to say I am from White Rock.
