Surrey Mounties ready for Bush

SURREY (NEWS1130) – Mounties say they’re not expecting trouble from protesters tomorrow when former US presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush speak in Surrey.

However, Corporal Drew Grainger says they’ll be ready if the protests get out of hand.

“Obviously Bush brings a lot of controversy but all the information that we have so far to go towards our plan is for a peaceful protest. Now having said that it is our job, our duty, to prepare for other scenarios.”

Corporal Grainger says they’ll have dozens of officers on site to handle the crowds which he thinks should be much smaller than the ones that gathered on 72nd Avenue and Scott Road during the Stanley Cup playoffs.

104th Avenue will be rerouted Thursday between 152nd and 154th Streets.
