If you go down to the beach today you'll never believe your eyes. If you go down
to the beach today you're in for a big surprise. Bit by bit, piece by piece, we
are starting to see Central Elgin's top secret plan for Port Stanley's Main Beach
unfolding before our very eyes.
It all started with dozers and dump trucks levelling the dunes, then graders spreading
all that sand back out on the beach where it belongs - but it hasn't stopped there.
Not only can beach goers now see the beach and the lake from the picnic pavilion
near the wash/change rooms, but now there is also a very impressive children's playground
right beside it; and, I might add, just behind the sign that talks about protecting
Port Stanley's dunes.
No peep about any of this has hit the public's ear prior to it being done, so now
both Port Stanley residents and visitors to Port wait with baited breath to see
Do you suppose Central Elgin Council read
Suzanne Metzger's letter about what was in store for the large population
of children that are likely to come to Port Stanley?
