<- french canadian to the rescue!
they wanna build some kind of platform on both side of a wakesurf spot /ski course to protect the shoreline and to enhance riders safety. One of the downside is that it would attract too many big birds and they're afraid that the fresh water would get poisoned due to all the extra fecal matter.. They are also afraid that the shore residents would complain if they had a surf/ski course in their backyard...I know I wouldn't !!
