Residents of Constance Bay have called on the city to improve signage and increase public safety on their beach after a 10-year-old boy died off the shoreline on Saturday.

“It’s only a matter of time before it happens again,” said longtime resident Guy Presse.

The Toronto-area boy went missing off the northeast tip of the bay’s notoriously dangerous lip on Saturday afternoon. His body was recovered by police divers shortly before 11 p.m. that night.
