Re: "Marathon closures will be reassessed," the Now, Oct. 8.
Where do I send my invoice for compensation? You see, the Surrey International World Music Marathon cost me a day's wages and, more importantly, it disrupted the completion of a project due at the month's end.
I was trapped at home all day so that a few hundred people could run around the most densely populated area of Surrey.
I suggest next year's route starts in front of the mayor's house, and we can shut down all the roads in her neighbourhood. In fact, why not have a bunch of smaller runs, each starting in front of the organizers' and supporters' homes? By the way, call me when you have my cheque ready for the wages I lost.
