It was very clear to me that with all the peo­ple I spoke to and heard from that SkyTrain and Sur­rey es­tab­lish­ing its own mu­nic­i­pal po­lice force are what is best for our city. As the elected rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the cit­i­zens of Sur­rey, we are de­liv­er­ing not just what we promised to do, but we are act­ing on what the peo­ple have said would be best for their city.”
