Group wants section of Wasaga Beach to be declared clothing-optional
WASAGA BEACH – It may be cold and icy outside but local nudists are petitioning municipal and provincial governments for their place in the sun along the world’s largest freshwater beach.
The Wasagabares have submitted letters to the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) and the Town of Wasaga Beach looking for a section of Wasaga Beach to be designated clothing-optional for this coming summer.
John Cropper, the founder of Wasagabares and director of the Federation of Ontario Naturists, expressed in a December letter to Mayor Brian Smith his concern over not receiving a reply from John Fisher of the MNR from letters dated September and October.
Cropper suggests that the far east end of Beach Area 1 be the designated area.
“We have historically collected at the ‘Point’… adjacent to the mouth of the Nottawasaga River, for decades.
