Doug Mccal­lum will elim­i­nate park­ing me­ters around Sur­rey Me­mo­rial Hospi­tal

Asian Journal - - BRITISH COLUMBIA -

Sur­rey: On Thurs­day, Doug Mccal­lum and the Safe Sur­rey Coali­tion an­nounced that they will elim­i­nate park­ing me­ters on the streets around Sur­rey Me­mo­rial Hospi­tal. He said, “we strongly be­lieve that peo­ple vis­it­ing their loved ones should not have to pay for park­ing. These are of­ten very stress­ful times. Vis­i­tors shouldn’t have to worry about their park­ing me­ters run­ning out - or worse yet worry about get­ting a ticket when they are bed­side com­fort­ing a loved one.” He also said that Safe Sur­rey Coali­tion will elim­i­nate park­ing fees in the un­der­ground park­ing lot at City Hall. The new Sur­rey City Hall cost al­most 150 mil­lion dol­lars to build. It’s a Sur­rey First pro­ject that comes with mar­ble walls and stone tile floors. It was paid for by you the tax­payer, it’s your ‘house.’ Why should you have to drive past empty park­ing stalls, re­served for staff, and then pay to park your own car? It makes no sense.
