Help keep lifeguards on 6 popular Vancouver beaches!

On February 15th, the Vancouver Park Board drafted out a new budget proposal.  To save funds, it wants to remove lifeguards permanently from Jericho Beach, Spanish Banks West, Spanish Banks Extension, Second Beach, Sunset Beach, and Trout Lake.

This is a SAFETY concern.  We believe people WILL drown and are being put at risk in these 6 now unsupervised public beaches.

Comments can be sent to the Park Board at pbcomment@vancouver.ca

Help us tell the Park Board that putting swimmers at risk at 6 popular beaches is not ok!

The Park Board hearing session for public feedback is on Monday, February 27, at 2099 Beach Ave.  The JSCA’s General Manager, Mike Cotter, is scheduled to speak.  Hope to see you there!
