Skinny dippers too need their peace. While many beaches in the Lower Mainland have a 300-metre *buff*er between their swimmers and jet skis and motorized vessels, Wreck Beach doesn’t. Apparently only so much exposure is acceptable…That’s why the Wreck Beach Preservation Society is presenting the municipal authority with a petition signed by more than 2,500 people, saying that party boats and jet-skis are polluting the area and ruining the secluded ambiance. As you probably know, and may have experienced first hand, Wreck Beach is located on the north arm of the Fraser River near UBC.
The only hitch is noone really knows who has jurisdiction over Wreck’s waters. Metro Vancouver staff members have been asked to investigate the jurisdictional question and prepare a report before the next council meeting.
