Calgary Pool Cancels All-Ages Nudist Swim After Receiving Threat


Event organizers called the move a “terrible precedent.”

An escalating debate over a nudist swim at a public swimming pool has prompted the City of Calgary to cancel the event over concerns about security.

“We’ve had a review completed by Calgary Police Service and corporate security that has led to these arising concerns,” James McLaughlin, acting director of Calgary Recreation, said Thursday.

“Safety concerns are related to the volatile public commentary regarding this public booking and they cause concerns for all users of the facility.”
