These photos are from April 3rd, 2011 of the continuing massive work on Arthur, as well as a picture of the revetment on King Edward and the sand piles for the huge sandbags being considered for King Edward and Alexandra.
These beaches will be unrecognizable come the May long weekend.
To STOP the sandbags from proceeding you need to contact by phone or email the province to voice your concerns. Here are some sample reasons: https://preservingvictoriabeach.wordpress.com/2011/02/19/64/ and direct them to the polls, showing further evidence of the community’s opinion on the matter: https://preservingvictoriabeach.wordpress.com/2011/03/24/poll-on-revetments/
