July 24(Sun.) was 7th Annual Wreck Beach Skinnydip day.

It was the first time to take the photo with Canadian Coast Guard Service Moytel.

It attracted many people… but at the same time, the earlier arrival did limited the number of the participants and ended up with 341 people.

341 ×$5 will be donated to W.B.P.S. by Mr. Roger Procter, CEO of Genex Capital.

All the money will be spent to protect Wreck Beach.

I’d like to say Thank you to all the participants, Roger, CCGS Moytal crews and Wreck Beach…

We are making posters and postcards from the photo. It will be ready for sell on the beach by this weekend.

Thank you again and see you soon on the beach!

HOUR LONG NUDE PROTEST AGAINST TRANSLINK CLOSURE OF BUS STOP C-20

  • June 5 (Sun.)
  • 12:00 to 1:00 PM
  • University Blvd. & Marine Dr.

Management admits no ridership analysis was done before pulling the plug!

 No Ridership Stats Nor Wreck Beach Stakeholder Consultation

Without any ridership statistics to back them up,  or consultation with Wreck Beach Preservation Society (WBPS) stakeholders in Electoral District A of Metro Vancouver, Translink  removed Bus Stop C-20 (University Boulevard and Marine Drive) this past month.   If they had checked their ridership figures, they would have learned that 387,285 visitors used Trail 6 in 2015.  Altogether, five trails accounted for a total of 528,796 users many of whom used the C-20 bus stop.  Those visitors contribute over $60-million annually in goods and services at all levels of government.  The former  (C-20 or # 51924 NB (northbound)NW Marine Drive at University Blvd.) ( bus stop where naturists will gather on June 5 to protest Translink’s bureaucratic dictatorship, lies  directly across from the head of Trail 6.  

 Public Input Before, Not After the Fact!

During the so-called public consultations on 87 locations last fall, Translink never specified C-20 nor did they advertise in the Vancouver Sun or Province which reaches areas outside the Metropolitan Vancouver area.  The WBPS has promoted public input before not after the fact for the past 47 years!  UBC  advised Translink to contact us directly, which they ignored.

Translink Immune to Hardships they Cause-Time for Minister Fassbender to return Translink to the Mayors!!

Mia Pers, Translink Management,  repeatedly claimed Translink has a responsibility for the safety of UBC students and with the escalation of sexual assaults on the UBC Campus, they felt they could better protect students and increase ridership by removing long-established C-20.   We reminded her that our tax  dollars pay Translink’s salaries.  Thus,  we should therefore be given the same weight as UBC students, staff, faculty and other  community stakeholders.  When Ms. Pers finally wrote to us officially after so-called consultation with upper management, UBC and  the bus company after stalling for three weeks,  the letter she sent us was nearly  a carbon copy of the one sent to  West Vancouver Libby Lodge wheelchair-bound resident, Pamela Best  who unsuccessfully tried to stop the cutting of the bus stop to the wheelchair-bound pensioners of Libby Lodge.
