Meech Lake beach closure infuriates nudist groups
Nude is not lewd, naturists say
Canada’s nudist groups have taken off the gloves, furious that people face criminal charges for skinny dip-ping and nude sunbathing in Gatineau Park.
“There’s nothing lewd or obscene about being nude,” members of the Federation of Canadian Naturists and Fédération québécoise de naturisme insist.
They’re accusing the National Capital Commission and MRC des Collines police of heavy-handed tactics in shutting down a nude beach on Meech Lake, near Trail 36 in the park.
