HOUSE-SIZE LIMIT SPURS CALLS OF RACISM

A decision by Surrey council to restrict house sizes in a neighbourhood of ranch-style homes has led to accusations of racism. "I think it's racism," St. Helen's Park resident Kamaljit Thind said yesterday. "By this [decision], they are telling me I am not welcome here, that I am not allowed to build a home to fit my family."
Council on Monday night voted to limit the size of new homes in St. Helen's to 3,200 square feet, including the basement. The bylaw, the first of its kind in the city, was the result of two years of consultation with residents who wanted to preserve the North Surrey neighbourhood's character. But other residents, mostly of South Asian background, opposed the bylaw, calling it discriminatory.

HI,
I argree with the bylaw. as i live next door to a monter house (which is built only last year) and the owner has a big problem of trees he hate trees cuts down to only stems standing.
on house size 1 having 3 kids they don't have place to play and plus they have 2 suite built after which is on rent cars parked on road and for us all we see from windows is brown wall .
The feel of home is gone the day the whole lot was dug with part of my lot and all the plants and flower which I planted over 10 years was covered in dirt or walked on or put building materials.
My yard was used as their own and when asked to move things we were told not to be jealous of new building plus 1 day I happen to come home early from work , took two wires contacted to my power supply only to be took we just did it right now and since we were not home their couldnot ask anyone.
I think it about time city put in place a bylaw for house sizes ,# of suites and tree cutting and over trim . and enfroce the bylaw not over look,with excuse of not enough bylaw personeel on job.

I think the bylaw is good one because it reflects the will of the neighbours.

People choose to live in a neighbourhood for various reasons. One of these reasons is they like the look and feel of the place. To fundamentally change this character is wrong and irresponsible.

My concratulations to the hard work of the residents and Council to take a stand on this issue.

We hope that Council will continue to do the right thing as it relates to suites in Surrey.

It is equally racist to go in to an established area and build non-conforming homes in that area. In addition if you can not afford to build these large homes without having two or three illegal suites build something smaller that you can afford. And people won't be so upset with you.

Just a thought you should consider before you accuse anyone who wishes to presercve something of being racist.

But what everyone here is forgetting that similar houses were allowed and built in the same neighborhood for at least two years its just that the mayor ran on curbing indo-canadian influence at city hall and is catering to certain elements of st helens white community that make no bones about keeping indo-canadians out. somments like "you have eight people to one house" "i don't want thi sin my neighborhood" etc it is racism plain and sinmple ntihing to do with house size. Remeber the monster house debate in Vancouver in the early 90's? now they are th norm and have replaced a lot of ugly stucco houses from the 60's. St helen's i sa redneck community anyway what do you expect. Also, what are the ppl who bought land under the impression that they would be allowed to build there like others have done in the past to do now??? haven't they been cheated??? its just that they happen to be of the wrong colour. It all started with the announcement of
Khalsa school being relocated there. Ppl just think others are dumb, but everyone can see that there is more to i than the media and city council will have you believe. All these ppl posting here have no problem with a white guy having dog shit in his front yard with 3 foot grass growing on it and rusted car with flat tires parked there, which is the norm in north surrey. Everyone has a prob with number of ppl in hindu houses and cars parked outside, well on hand you talk about high density and on the other you want to restrict ppl to a few a household and no basement suites and no affordable rental units. Why do ppl assume that everyone wants to live in a rancher. You live in a big city, we have to use the space we have to the max. Ok a 5000 sq ft. house would not make sense but 3500 sq ft limit was pretty reasonable, but the city brought it down to further.

I was actually holding off on this review because you couldn't purchase the Mini-Lotus fleshlight Girls texture anymore, but I guess I had put it in their recent DER SPIEGEL article:" That was bad enough.
