Is White Rock a part of Surrey?

38 posts in this topic

Sorry, this may sound like a stupid and pointless thread, but it's something i've always been curious of and today I just did some research and couldn't really find a concrete answer, so I decided to make a thread. Mods can delete if its not a proper topic or something but answers pleaseeeee.

I believe not, I could be wrong but the names of these places does support my theory.

As a current Resident/guy who helps the city run. The answer is no.

I believe it disbanded around 1954 or so. Still part of Metro Vancouver but not a part of Surrey.

It's like when a child divorces his parents....kinda.

Edit: 1957

Totally its own city with an average age of 81. Its also getting filled air tight by Surrey.

Actually average age is 51.3

Average age in Canada 39.9

I get your sarcasm but to tell you the truth, it's not cheap to live in White Rock and with the extra sun it gets compared to the surrounding areas, it makes it a desirable place to live for the retirement crowd.

Average age for the girls on the strip in the summertime 22.6

Works for me.

No.

White Rock runs itself but Surrey and White Rock are more or less the same besides the tax benefits by living on the other of 16th Ave. haha - morgan creek benefits ;)

If you're a resident of White Rock, then the correct answer is NO.

If you're a resident of Surrey, then the correct answer is YES.

It's like the China/Tibet thing.

The fact that White Rock has boundaries and has its own municipal office means it has separated itself from the rest of Surrey. This is also evident in who residents pay property taxes towards.

Minus the fact that the people of Surrey aren't suppressing White Rock and slaughtering them but I guess you're right?

White Rock is not a part of Surrey, but it used to be. It like many other oddities ended up splitting for the farming town of Surrey because the farmers didn't want to pay for streetlights.

Ditto Langley City and Langley township (two towns).

Ditto City and District of North Vancouver (two towns).

While strangly the communities of North Delta, Ladner, and Twassen managed to get along (they are all part of the municipality of Delta).
