I recently had the pleasure of spending a day in your beautiful community of White Rock.
I enjoyed my walk from North Bluff and Johnson down past the shops and on to East Beach via Columbia.
I had lived on Lee Street for a short while around 1970. As a young, just-married woman, I loved it there.
As I continued my walk along the tidal sands barefoot, I had many memories of happy days in my childhood at this beach. In the 1950s and ’60s, mom and dad often packed up the pink Volkswagen for a day at White Rock beach. We drove in from Coquitlam, it was an all-day outing and it was always fun.
I regret to say my lovely day of memories was marred by only one thing – the unpleasant experience of using the public restroom beside the pier. The look of disgust on the faces of those coming out said it all.
White Rock beach is a beautiful tourist attraction. I do feel your town should make it a No. 1 priority to have a clean and modern facility at this location.
Thank you for the opportunity to voice my concern. I have never before written a letter to the editor, but I feel strongly about this issue.
