2. How do I know the beach I am using is public?
All beaches in Tiny Township are historically public except for  Rowntree Beach.

3. What should I do if I am harassed by waterfront adjacent  owners, Township Bylaw Officers or the Police?

4. Will my backlot cottage property values decrease if this proposal is passed?
If the beaches go private-yes. In 1994 when Rowntree Beach became  private through a court decision the value of backlot cottages and residences dropped 40 %. After all who would buy a cottage that has no access to the beach.

5. Why must the public be included in this access to beach issue?
The public have used the beaches for over 100 years and Save The Beaches believes that our children and grandchildren should continue  to enjoy these beautiful beaches for generations to come. Our public  rights must be protected and maintained or this could happen anywhere  in Canada.

6. Who can sign the STB petition?
Anyone that is concerned about this injustice can sign the petition  as Save The Beaches strongly believes that the present attempt to  keep the public away from the beaches, if passed, will set a precedent for other beach areas outside Tiny Township. We encourage all ages, young and old, to sign the petition as Save The Beaches also believes we all have public rights, irregardless of age (4 years to 144 years), that must be protected.

If you have used the beaches please sign this petition.
