While negotiations continue regarding the long-term beach management strategy, motorized access to this portion of the beach will be restricted by unobtrusive wooden posts for this season. Signage which has been endorsed by all concerned parties, will be posted at Centre Ipperwash Beach. The signs advising the public that “No Motorized Vehicles Beyond This Point” are ready to be installed for this upcoming summer season.
The Chippewas of Kettle and Stony Point First Nation is located along the shores of Lake Huron, 35 km northeast of Sarnia, Ontario. It has two land bases, one of which was the focus of a half century long land dispute that would have repercussions across the country.
