Vancouver Bans Water Wings at Local Beaches
What's this city coming to?
No pets, no smoking, no drinking, no parties, no barbeques, and now no water wings? Really? Children all over the world have come to love these little floatation devices that encourage their ability to swim, and explore the many beautiful wonders of water. There have been issues about pollution due to some inconsiderate folks simply leaving them lying around on beaches, and even in the water, but thanks to the good samaritans like myself who clean up after these people we don't necessarily need to worry about those issues. One thing about this new ban is that it not only restricted water wings, but many other floatation devices used by thousands of people to enhance their outdoor water experiences. This brings a question to mind that I have not been able to find an answer for since I first heard about this new issue... What's the reasoning behind the ban? Global news did us a favor in covering the story, and you can check out their video at the following link,
In regards to the reason for this ban I honestly can't think of one that would not imply people to be irresponsible, and with that said it would be nice for the city of Vancouver to clarify their reasoning. I understand that many people may be able to come up with an excuse for the city, but the fact is that the general public would prefer to hear it from the pipers mouth himself. I do hope that this ban will fade into existence like so many other ridiculous attempts to ban people from having fun, and I hope that this hub will provide people with a space to share their own comments on this issue. Be it bad, good, or just outright opinionated I would love to hear what others have to say about it.

If your with the ban or against the ban on water wings then please leave your comments below.
If the list grows big enough I'll be forwarding this hub to district offices so they can be made aware of how people feel about this ban. A responsible person would stay within arms reach of their children at all times near water, and the city bans are getting ridiculous enough to imply we are not responsible. Neither did they give us fair warning that something like this could happen. Please leave your comments to show your concerns about this new issue.
