Tsawwassen held hostage on Boxing Day


Not everything is welcome when it comes to Tsawwassen Mills.

On Boxing Day there was a huge pilgrimage to the mall by shoppers from other municipalities looking to save a few dollars at the annual Boxing Day sales.

There was so much traffic on Highway 17 that it made it difficult and very time consuming to drive in or out of Tsawwassen, not to mention disrupting or blocking ferry traffic.

Those of us who live in Tsawwassen only have two options in and out of our community and to experience the kind of traffic blockage on Boxing Day is not only inconvenient, it is downright menacing to emergency vehicles to fight the traffic during such events.

I suggest blocking access to Highway 17 (in and around 56th Street) for shoppers bound for Tsawwassen Mills and an alternate route to the mall could be Deltaport Way which enjoys access from both Highway 17 and Highway17A

Happy New Year!
