Together, we can do better.

As we head to election day, visit here often for more details and news as Surrey First shares your vision for the future of our city.



If politicians don’t work for taxpayers, then who do they work for?

  • Surrey residents should be welcomed at city hall, not banned.
  • Public questions at city council meetings should be part of every meeting.
  • Big decisions should be made in public, not behind closed doors.


It’s your money and your city.

  • Take a good look at your taxes, are they up by the 2.9% promised by Doug McCallum, or are they higher?
  • Surrey needs an independent Auditor General to keep an eye on spending, programs, and efficiency at city hall, just like every other big city in Canada.
  • City Hall has never been more disconnected from Surrey residents, and never been more secretive, just the way Doug McCallum likes it.


It’s time to work where we live.

  • We need a stronger local economy, with good jobs closer to home, and less time commuting to other cities.
  • In Surrey we spend twice as much time in our cars as Vancouverites, we need more and better transit, particularly north-south.
  • Surrey should be an “opportunity city” for residents, families and businesses, where a competent city council plays its part to support a healthy environment, livability, innovation, and housing affordability.

Public Safety

Surrey voters must have the final say about who polices our city.

  • Surrey has not hired a single new officer in four years and the Surrey Police Service is more than a year behind schedule with a ballooning budget.
  • Unchecked police transition costs have syphoned off money that should have gone to pools, parks, rinks and community centres.
  • Surrey First called for a policing referendum in the last election, and we’re committed to giving Surrey voters their say on who polices our city.
