URGENT! IT HAS JUST BEEN REPORTED: There are trucks dumping rocks on Arthur Beach right now as of this post on Tuesday morning, Feb 22 at 11 am. An eye witness saw the police briefly intervene and Council is now seeking legal advice on how to stop the construction but offers no other comment at this time.  Meanwhile, the work is continuing.  Please phone the municipal offices if you have any further questions, concerns or want to voice that you wish it halted.

UPDATE: 4:10 pm:   A cease and desist order  has been requested, based on the Crown Land Act Section 27 Subsection 7. Confirmed by RM Police.
