Re: Problems here long before us, May 15.
Don Crowe’s letter to the editor was only partially right.
Yes, in the old days our communities were facilitated by the railway with train stations. That finished in the early ’70s. Now it is just a massive pain in the you-know-what.
Locating or visiting in a place with only one access road is not a choice if you want to live or visit the only ocean beach in Surrey.
I think, however, if we continue along Don’s line of thinking we should just give this whole area and many other prime areas on the coast back to the native Indians where they can just peacefully hunt and fish. Oh yes, even we used to hunt in Vancouver and maybe we should bring that back.
Times are changing and nothing should be written in stone. There are railway lines in Vancouver now and many other communities that are abandoned.
It’s about time the citizens in the communities of White Rock and Surrey get to use and walk this incredible beautiful natural shoreline which could join Blaine and Centennial Beach in Delta with access points all along that corridor in harmony with each other.
