In July of 2015 the Toronto Star posted a letter to the editor from John Watt and Elaine Tanner which included the following…
This is getting beyond belief. After numerous drownings there are still no lifeguards at Wasaga Beach. Even after decades of public and editorial support, and multiple preventable drownings. Enough is enough.
The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry should be ashamed of itself, and so should the town of Wasaga Beach.
It is now beyond the critical moment for the town and province to act. A preventative lifeguard system should be implemented by the 2018 season. If not, the mayor should resign, along with staff person at Queen’s Park responsible for public beach safety.
