An environmentally friendly hydrogen powered passenger train connecting the Pattullo Bridge in Surrey to Chilliwack

Instead of dreaming about high speed rail from Seattle to Surrey and or moving the BNSF tracks off the Semiahmoo waterfront, let's consider a transportation option that is sitting right in front of us.

Hydrogen Powered Passenger Train

The South Fraser Community Rail Task Force is a group dedicated to providing information to the public and political leaders in each community along the inter-urban rail route from Surrey to Chilliwack. We propose a state of the art, emission-free passenger train using hydrogen fuel cell technology to produce electrical power to connect these communities.

Existing Track with Passenger Use Rights

The 99km passenger rail service will use existing track already servicing the communities from Surrey to Chilliwack. This existing rail line is available for passenger use at no cost due to a right-of-way owned by the people of BC

You've Got Mail!

Most residences in White Rock & South Surrey received this postcard in the mail this week.

Not what anyone wants to see as homeowners rush to try to catch a diminishing high point on a sinking real estate market.

 

He's Back!

Brooke Colby

Tireless promoter BROOKE COLBY appears not ready to take no for an answer. COLBY you may remember back in December when our pier was destroyed in a winter storm, came up with the idea of having an Evil Knievel motorcyclist jump the gap in the pier.

The city of White Rock to say the least was not impressed, mainly in that they heard about COLBY'S idea only after it hit the media. Since then COLBY has met with White Rock mayor DARRYL WALKER and has appeared before council to explain is his vision.

IN case you missed it, last month the CBC television show THIS HOUR HAS 22 MINUTES had a little fun with the idea.

(watch the video - click here)

COLBY plans on taking another run at White Rock council in the coming weeks.

Smarten Up Dog Owners

White Rock council recently unanimously approved a "trial period" of 6 months to allow dogs on leash on the promenade. The trial period BEGINS October 01, 2019.

It has been reported on social media all weekend by the anti dog brigade that the promenade is now very busy with people walking their dogs. Keep it up folks and that trial period could disappear as quickly as it was invoked. If you see ANYONE walking their dogs on the promenade please inform them of the official start date and reinforce they are in danger of losing the trial period by ignoring the current by law of NO DOGS on the promenade!!!!

Chesney's Chestnut

What flavors of ice cream do you have?" inquired the customer.

"Vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate," answered the new waitress in a hoarse whisper.

Trying to be sympathetic, the customer asked, "Do you have laryngitis?"

"No...." replied the new waitress with some effort, "just...erm.... vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate."
