Local pig sings and needs a home!

By | Leah Holiove, News | No Comments

I had the pleasure of meeting Lyle the pig who is super cute and actually sings! Yes he sings! He is currently at the Surrey BCSPCA in the Good Shepherd Barn where he was brought in a year ago as part of a cruelty investigation. At first he was very fearful and didn’t like to be touched. Fast forward a year and he is a different pig, he came right to me and started to sing! He loves belly rubs, foot massages and he’s house trained! Lyle needs a forever home so if you are interested in adopting Lyle or want to meet him email rescues@spca.bc.ca.

He will sing your blues away!

What would you do if you saw a Bear on Translink?!?

By | News, Tara Lopez

This week in the Tri-Cities, there was a BEAR that wandered onto a Translink Platform during the morning rush hour commute!

It looks like these transit riders had no idea what to do!  Would you skip out on your commute to work if you saw a bear on the train platform?!!

Good news is: no one was hurt.  Translink momentarily evacuated the train station shortly after 8 am, and then it was business as usual.

Here’s the video of the bear wandering on the platform, check it out:

Flashback 90’s!

By | Leah Holiove, News

I can remember playing video games as a young girl and playing this song over and over again on my boom box. It is such a great hype you up type of song, great for sports games as well. Good Vibrations was released in 1991 by Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch (AKA Mark Wahlberg.) He didn’t really sing, he mostly talked and kind of rapped in the song but he looked good in his Calvin Kleins that’s for sure.

Take your spouse or your mom if there was only one spot left on a lifeboat?

 

This is a tough one! I’m not married but I don’t know what I would do!! I think my mom would tell me to take my spouse because she is very kind like that! So maybe spouse if she was okay with it, but I still really don’t know! Do you?

JUSTICE – ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

By | Neil Morrison, News

Where is the justice in this world?

That’s a question everyone seems to be asking every time you talk to friends, family, and read the comments sections online. Time and time again, offenders -convicted of minimal to unspeakable crimes seem to be showing up in front of a judge, and being given the lightest possible sentences. The public don’t know why, the courts won’t explain why, and the police seem to fear their jobs should they say anything. Today, Raymond Caissie will appear before courts today after pleading guilty to second degree murder back in 2014 of a 14 year girl – less than a year after being released for a sexual assault and kidnapping in 1991. Even he said he didn’t want to be released as he thought he was a risk to the public! 10 years ago yesterday, the Surrey 6 murders happened – the suspects still haven’t gone to trial!! Those are two cases that have the public shaking their collective head and saying, ‘Why is there a Court System, if there is no Justice System?’

And then….silence.

Why are we not hearing from the politicians? Why are we not hearing from the judges? Why are we not hearing from the police?

Why?

…and let’s not even get into the conversation regarding those, ‘known to police’ who re-offend time after time after time after…

Surrey RCMP need help identifying a suspect in a pair of sexual assaults.

By | News | No Comments

The sexual assaults occurred in the Clayton Heights area of Surrey within seven days of each other. On October 10th and October 17th  two different  young girls were groped in separate locations by an unknown male before escaping to safety. In both instances the victims were able to provide descriptions of the assailant.  Subsequent neighbourhood canvassing by officers of the Surrey RCMP Special Victim’s Unit (SVU) located other witnesses and surveillance video of the alleged suspect. The updated description of the suspect is a Caucasian man, 30-40 years old, 5’10”-6’0”, 170-180lbs., with brown hair, thick eyebrows, full lips, long ears and lobes, facial hair and possibly wearing glasses.

Investigators are now releasing stills from the surveillance video, captured on October 10th and three composite sketches created by a Surrey RCMP Forensic Artist of the suspect.

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.  If you wish to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.

Would You Rather….

Skip everywhere you go or dance everywhere you go?

 

I love to dance but I think I would get around faster if I was to skip everywhere instead of dancing, so I choose to skip. It would be pretty cool to see people skipping or dancing around everyday, it would make the world feel like a nicer place to live!

Black and Orange Day instead of Halloween.

By | Leah Holiove, News

I love Halloween, I have ever since I was a kid! Every year at my elementary school we would have a parade on Halloween and every class would walk around the gym showing off their costumes. My mom and I would spend a month planning my costume because I looked so forward to it! So when I read a couple stories this week of a few schools in the US cancelling their Halloween costume parades and saying “it can be difficult for many students, also the parade is not inclusive of all the students and it is our goal each and every day to ensure all student’s individual differences are respected.” this really upsets me.  It just seems to be made into a political issue which it shouldn’t be at all, one school has actually changed the day to “Black and Orange Day.” Wow.

At my school if a kid didn’t want to dress up they didn’t have to and they could just sit out and not take part in the parade. It just seems like we are making this world less fun for kids when in this day and age they really need some fun. I know a younger me would have been very upset if they cancelled my Halloween parade. Let kids be kids, they don’t see the political side in anything so please stop forcing them too.
