Name the New Bridge to Surrey The Bob Bose Bridge

This petition had 124 supporters

The Province of British Columbia has announced that it will replace the aging Pattullo Bridge with a new structure to be opened by 2023. This new structure should be named after former Surrey Mayor Bob Bose. 

For 28 years Bob Bose served on Surrey City council – which included nearly a decade as Mayor. His grandfather Robert, was a Surrey pioneer and Reeve (Mayor) of Surrey from 1905 to 1910

Bose’s list of accomplishments is long and meaningful, particularly regarding preserving green spaces in the city. He helped avert the development of Green Timbers Urban Forest, Sunnyside Acres and Surrey Bend, in addition to innumerable other parks that were slated for construction. He was also instrumental in helping develop the region’s first Livable Strategic Plan, which thanks in part to Bose, contains a “Green Zone” protected from development.

To honour the generations of service to the City of Surrey from Bob Bose and his family, we submit that this new bridge be named The Bob Bose Bridge
