On Saturday, hundreds of beachgoers visited the popular west island beach even though it’s still closed and without lifeguards. Video shows people dancing, drinking and ignoring social distance measures. Beis says it was the same problem last year yet no plan has been adopted by the city of Montreal to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

It isn’t our jurisdiction, it is managed by the city of Montreal,” said Beis. “However, there hasn’t been any action on their part since last year when we initially raised the flag and said look, there are potential issues here.” Trending Stories Beach at Oka park closed down after revelers flout COVID-19 rules The Pierrefonds mayor says he’s looking for better safeguards to be put in place, even if it’s just extra security, to remind visitors to practice social distancing. In a statement to Global News, the city says several measures have already been put in place at the beach to ensure everyone’s safety. “The park is receiving support from Station 3 of the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM). Cadets will also be present from next week to support employees, ensure safety and respect for health measures, in particular physical distancing,” reads the email.
