Transmountain Pipeline proposed route

As discussed at our meeting on December 6, below is an overview of the Kinder Morgan pipeline through Fraser Heights – the yellow dotted line is the proposed center line.

Hawthorne Park – will it be lost?

There is a risk that Hawthorne Park – at the intersection of 104 Ave and 144 St – will be lost if 105 Ave is expanded for vehicle traffic to offset the loss of 104 Ave when the light rail transit is put into place. If you want to speak out against the destruction of the park, you can do so at

There is a petition on that page that you can join. The main part of the web posting is below:

Save Hawthorne Park

Hawthorne Park is a beautiful forested area in North Surrey. It is home to countless wildlife species and is an oasis for the community. The forested area is used by numerous people who enjoy its system of walking trails, and the park area is host to an abundance of social gatherings.

Hawthorne Park

The City of Surrey is planning to build a two lane road, with an additional connecting road, through the south end of Hawthorne Park. The road will start on the west side and exit on the east side. There will also be a southbound two lane road connecting the main road to 104th Avenue.

Project Map

Construction was originally scheduled for January 2018, but has now been moved up to late August 2017. This road is being constructed to handle the traffic that will be rerouted from 104th Avenue due to the proposed LRT.

Wildlife living in the forest will be devastated and several of the well-used walking trails will be replaced with two lane roads. No longer will we be able to watch the red-tail hawks fly overhead or listen to the barred owl at night. The roads will go right through their habitats.

Print out the petition and hand it out!

We need to preserve this forest for our community, for future generations, and for the wildlife living there who have no voice to speak for themselves.

Please stand with the community and sign this petition.

Temporary Discontinuation of Online Reporting for RCMP

Temporary Discontinuation of Online Reporting

Please be advised that online reporting has been temporarily discontinued for all RCMP detachments.

BC RCMP is currently in the process of creating a new, improved online reporting tool that is anticipated to launch in mid/late 2018. Previously, we were using an external company to provide this reporting tool and that contract has expired.

An alternative to calling non-emergency, online reporting allows residents to report less serious offences online such as thefts under $5,000, vandalism, unsafe driving, and vehicle break-ins.

We look forward to being able to provide you with an improved online reporting experience next year. In the meantime, please report crime via our non-emergency number at 604-599-0502 (911 for emergencies). Anonymous tips can still be submitted online through Crime Stoppers at www.solvecrime.ca.

Thank you for your patience and for your continued support in reporting crime and suspicious activity to police to keep our neighbourhoods safe.
