"Ontario's South Coast has been called many things including the Ontario Riviera, Blue Water Country and the Lake Erie Coast" Jim Fox, London Free Press
Long Point has claimed over 400 ships wrecked or sunk with their treasures lost or stolen, thus the moniker "Gold Coast" one of many names anointing the area over the centuries.
Turkey Point on Lake Erie,
Ontario's South Coast
The past is a great place and I don't want to erase it or to regret it, but I don't want to be its prisoner either.

Goldcoastliving.ca is not pretending to know all the details of the clash between those that want to keep the sand and those who want a swamp (bulrushes) on Turkey Point Beach.
What we are merely doing is making an observation from looking at the above photograph.
The area in question in the above photograph of Turkey Point Beach is on the lake side, between Cedar Street and Lake Erie. Since the Provincial Government took over that area a few years ago they have nurtured, or allowed to grow, the swamp/bulrushes occupying 6 - 10 acres (guessing)
The question has to be asked: Why?
As one can see from the photograph, Turkey Point beach is surrounded by swamp/bulrushes somewhere in the neighborhood of 200 -300 acres (guessing).
If the reason for allowing the swamp to grow is environmental/ecological then everyone should understand how that would apply to Turkey Point Beach, considering the obvious imbalance of beach versus swamp.
If you or anyone you know could enlighten the readers, it would be very appreciated.
