Port Colborne has right to limit beach access
Re: Legality of Port Colborne beach closure questioned, Letters, Sept. 11
When there is a pandemic and case rates are low, as they are in Port Colborne, the city has the right to make beaches locals only.
Also, roads were being blocked by people trying to park. Households couldn’t even park a second car in front of their houses in the east village.
Not to mention abuse of the beaches themselves. People were defecating and covering fecal matter with sand. Boaters were having issues with beachgoers approaching boats while anchored offshore.
The beachgoers were actually telling boaters they weren’t allowed there. How would they know? We who live in this area know the laws and regulations.
People that don’t boat do not typically know. Until this pandemic is over we deserve to be safe. Allowing hundreds, if not thousands of people from high infection rate areas here is not a wide idea. Grow up. Troy Soper Port Colborne
