Rachael and James Currie-Quelch started this petition to Cobourg Town Council

Every beach in Ontario is OPEN, except Victoria beach in Cobourg. 

We want the Cobourg beach open on the weekends for the physical and mental well-being of the youth, children, and communities and to support the tourism industry of local businesses in Cobourg.

If the province and cities like Toronto can listen to the science and safely open their beaches, Cobourg can too. Cobourg Council has created and discussed a safety plan to open the beach,  and we want them to implement it, not ignore it.

The majority of people have time off on the weekends, not during the week to visit the beach. 

“There were no outbreaks linked to crowded beaches, there’s never been a Covid-19 outbreak linked to a beach ever anywhere in the world to the best of my knowledge. Beaches are NOT a hotbed for coronavirus transmission” (Professor Mark Woolhouse, professor of infectious disease epidemiology at the University of Edinburgh and an adviser to the government's Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies).
