The Surrey Beaver Issue

Comments 9 by Rebecca Bollwitt

I grew up in Surrey, more specifically (for those who do not already know) Whalley. I went to West Whalley secondary and played in the Trojan Classic basketball tournament. I know Surrey like the back of my hand, well at least I used to… most places I recognized as being farms and agricultural land are […]

Comments 17 by Rebecca Bollwitt

We saw a skunk sifting through garbage in the back alley the other day, I think they are doing shift work while the raccoons sleeping, it struck me as sorta strange. When the strike first started (remember way back when? even during the fireworks?) people were like “oh you can’t even tell!” At this point, […]
