A similar naked swimming event in Calgary was cancelled on Thursday after backlash over children’s safety
Despite a similar event stirring up controversy in Calgary, the organizers of an Edmonton family-friendly naked swim this Saturday have not been stripped of their right to bare all.
The organizers behind the ‘January Nude Swim’, happening at the Hardisty Fitness and Leisure Centre on Saturday, have received no complaints on their Facebook page or their website, according to event coordinators.
“I like to think that Edmontonians are more progressive than Calgarians,” said John Martens, main administrator of CottonTail Corner Facebook page.
A new Calgary naturist group, Calgary Nude Recreation planned a family-friendly nude swim at the Southland Leisure Centre for Jan. 14.
