Authorities do Their Best to Prevent Raves at Sombrio Beach

Roads giving access to Sombrio Beach will be closed over the long weekend as a pretty weak way to prevent ravers from partying there, according to today’s article in the Huffington Post.

Victoria Day long weekends attract hundreds of you pill poppin’ rascals to the beach, over 600 according to authorities, which makes it impossible for RCMP and park rangers to control.

People have expressed their support of the road-blocking in the Facebook group Stop Raving at Sombrio Beach where people are complaining about the conservation area being destroyed by ravers with broken bottles, glowsticks and unnecessary destruction.

Andy Macdonald of B.C. Parks has other issues, according to Huffington Post. He says past incidents have included assaults, vandalism and overdoses.

You kids and your drugs. God bless you.

Anyway, all this means is you’ll need to carry your shit a lot farther because roads leading directly into Sombrio Beach and its parking lot will be closed for the entire weekend beginning at 6am this morning to 6am Monday morning.

Juan de Fuca Provincial Park and Sombrio Beach will still be open along with roads into China Beach, Parkinson Creek and Botanical Beach.
