Dominion Beach Renewal
Deputy premier and local MLA ,Frank Corbett and Joe Ellsworth
First pollution from nearby sewage outfalls prevented swimming.
Then... once that was resolved... mother nature continued to take a toll.
Erosion has been eating away the shoreline and winter storms have damaged the parks infrastructure.
The provincial government recently sent out a survey to help it plan for the future of Dominion Beach.
More than 1-thousand people answered.
Deputy premier and local MLA ,Frank Corbett, spoke with Joan Weeks about the survey.

The survey showed that almost half the people who use Dominion Beach... go there to walk the trail... enjoy the scenery ...or to bird watch.
In the summer.... only 30 per cent enjoy swimming and sun bathing.
Joe Ellsworth has been a lifelong visitor to Dominion Beach. He's part of a committee formed to find a solution to the erosion problems.
Ellsworth met with reporter Joan Weeks on the beach earlier today.
