The week in review » news reported during the week ending August 17, 2014

Boil water advisory, pyjama party, pipe beating and more

Here's what was compiled from the Surrey B.C. news source compilation: news, civic and blogging sources from and about Surrey, B.C. Canada.

Introduction

Info on South of the Fraser River: Surrey, Delta, White Rock, City of Langley, Township of Langley, Fort Langley. Maybe a bit of Abbotsford, just for fun.

This site is experimental. See About (top right) for more, or Blog for meta-information. The working goal is to create an almanac of items, tidbits of information and methods of gathering information.

Right now the site is biased to just south of the Fraser River, within the northern reaches of great City of Surrey, but there is some foraging further afield.
