I didn’t have the opportunity to attend the recent consultation about the Lakeview Waterfront Connection Project Environmental Assessment in Mississauga.
It’s my understanding, however, that one of the options would involve the removal of the sand beach on the west side of Etobicoke Creek in Marie Curtis Park followed by a replacement featuring a shoreline protected by boulders which is characterized as a ‘beach’ in the proposal.
Residents of Long Branch may not have known that the Lakeview plans include, as I understand, the part of Marie Curtis Park that is on the Toronto side of the Mississauga-Toronto border.
