I give it a 3. In a few years I'll give it a 5, which is still dissapointing, since a 5 still sucks for the future largest city in BC.
I agree there's not much skyline for Surrey, and high marks are undeserved. But let's not get too angry at it. I'm not so sure we should be looking too hard at the population in this case. Since it has acted as a typical suburb for Vancouver for decades, and the boundary just happens to circle a huge area of land. Most of what we see now is low to farm land density. If Surrey were situated by itself on the prairies, that'd be different.
