BC United Leader Kevin Falcon firmly supports Surrey Police Service

BC United Leader Kevin Falcon told a Punjabi radio station in Surrey that if he were the Public Safety Minister he “would absolutely make a binding decision for sure” regarding continuing with the municipal policing transition in Surrey.

Falcon told the host: “If I was the mayor, based on the information I know, I’d take the $50 million every year and go with the Surrey Police Service.”

He was referring to the Province’s financial offer to the City of Surrey to go with the Surrey Police Service — one that Surrey Mayor Brenda Locke has rejected.

With both the NDP government and the Official Opposition supporting the Surrey Police Service, Locke is now in a hopeless situation.

In any case, the provincial government has the final say in the matter.
