PEOPLE lined the sea wall in Mindarie.
Nobody is blaming the city of Wanneroo Mr Bianchini we are highlighting the fact the the City of wanneroo needs to do something about Clayton beach and all its beaches with putting a beach policy in place.Put aside the boy who drowned what about the English man who drowned 7 weeks earlier he could swim but he was not warned of strong currents. Yes we all need to work together to fix this and this is not about blame. This is about lobbing the people who can do something about the issue. There is a petition going around ASKING the city to get a beach policy in place.
Whenever there is a new seaside development the ads on tv and in the paper say, close to safe family beaches, so why wouldn't newcomers think that the beaches weren't safe. Plus the fact that you never see a round throwing life buoy on a pole with a rope attached. All over the U.K.everywhere where the public come in contact with water, ie lakes, piers, bridges, beaches.ponds, rivers etc every 500 mts there are poles.I have never seen one in W.A. not one at Hillary's, Mindarie, or on any bridges. On the Narrows or Causeway bridges or at Freo wharf. When I rang the D.P.I.to ask why? I was told do you know how much that would cost. Yes about the same as it does in the U.K. I was also told that they would be stolen/vandalised. How come no one steals them in the UK as they have the name of the city or shire printed on them,making them useless to keep or sell.
