The Whiskey Harbour and Pike Bay communities are continuing the ongoing legal action to keep public access to The Rocks Recreation Area and not have it closed to public. The Whiskey Harbour Recreation Association (WHRA) experienced delays in 2013 when the adjacent land owner to The Rocks requested disposition on the status of ownership of land to the south of the area WHRA claims to be public. The WHRA granted his request for delay to the end of June 2014, on the recommendation of our legal counsel based on the assumption that arguing against such a delay would likely fail and the likelihood of WHRA having to pay the costs of doing so. The WHRA committee will consult with counsel on any additional delay requests before consenting. Committee’s position is to accept no further delays and proceed to trial.
To the north of us, the Bass Road Beach Association (beach located at the end of Lindsey Rd. 20) is appealing their ruling,
given by the deputy director of titles for Ontario. If anyone would like to contribute to their legal fees for this please
see Peter Osborne for details.
Decisions from the appeal court may favour their matter in keeping the beach public. The first is Edward Richard Ellard
vs Township of Tiny 12 July 2012 and the second is a Court of Appeal decision involving Battaglia vs Township of Tiny.
Both favour keeping beaches public. Look on the
Tiny Twp website if you wish to read the decisions.
