This file documents shared and retweeted items that reflect areas of interest for Delta, Surrey, White Rock and the Langleys. The @SouthOfFraser account tries to publicize items of interest to civic-minded people with an emphasis on news sources that may not get a lot of retweets.




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.
