B.C. municipal election 2018: Surrey results

A A

Global News has declared Doug McCallum the winner in Surrey’s mayoral election.

McCallum defeated Surrey First councillor Tom Gill and Bruce Hayne, a former Surrey First city councillor who ran with Integrity Now.

McCallum served as mayor from 1996 to 2005. He lost to Dianne Watts in 2005 and again to current mayor Linda Hepner in 2014.

He has promised to bring in a regional police force in Surrey and will push to scrap light rail in Surrey with the proposal that SkyTrain be extended down the Fraser Highway to Langley.

Seven of eight council seats went to members of McCallum’s Safe Surrey Coalition. Linda Annis is the sole member of Surrey First, the party that has dominated local politics for a decade, to be elected to council.

Population (2016)

History

The land that now encompasses Surrey was first inhabited by the Katzie, the Semiahmoo and the Kwantlen First Nations, who established settlements along the Fraser River, at Crescent Beach and elsewhere.

There, they would hunt, gather, and collect shellfish, salmon, oolichans and herring from the river.

New settlement would begin in earnest in the late 19th century, with 200 new residents recorded there by 1880.

Agriculture would grow as an industry; so would logging.

Surrey would become a municipality in 1879 and then a city in September 1993.

Today, it’s B.C.’s second-largest city by population, a number that is expected to exceed Vancouver’s by 2041.
