1. Apparently some people in Surrey really don’t like the RCMP.
A video circulating online shows a man in a truck pulling up to a home, ripping the ‘Keep the RCMP in Surrey’ sign off their lawn, and then speeding away.
Ivan Scott, who is the organizer of the ‘Keep the RCMP in Surrey’ campaign says people have no right to remove the signs.
“It’s everybody’s right to demonstrate, especially on their own property what they want. Nobody has the right to take these signs, but this isn’t the first incident we’ve had. We’ve had down in Ocean Park nine signs taken away from there. It’s difficult to find out who this is.”
Scott says he has his suspicions on the person or persons behind the thefts.
