Busy Sunday at the beach in Barrie

Some cars ticketed

Yes, it was a busy Sunday afternoon at Centennial Beach in Barrie.

The above video was taken around 5 p.m. showing most adhering to physical distancing – be it personal or within the circle of friends they had arrived with.

There were social media claims of “thousands from the GTA” and “no bylaw ticketing anyone for parking in resident-only areas”. Others wondered “How do you know there [sic] not from Barrieā€¦.we are waiting for new passes..so none in the window”.

During our visit, a bylaw enforcement officer was seen ticketing several vehicles.
