Should the city's beach season be longer?

Lifeguards are no longer on duty at the city's five beaches, even though it's still warm out.

Rideau-Vanier Councillor Mathieu Fleury said extending beach season isn't that simple."There are significant budget challenges," said Fleury. "At the same time, there are some staffing issues. We could certainly look at other approaches to keep the beach season expanded."
