Has anyone watched the Sombrio beach documentary.  Basically about 20 squatters living a subsistence lifestyle while surfing and raising children at sombrio beach, until the Canadian government wanted to turn the beach into a park. One family raised 10 kids there.  The community was there over 30 years 1960 to 1997!  Just Google [sombrio trailer] to get a glimpse.

Excellent documentary. I believe it was privately owned land, possibly bought by the government to make a park?

Yes, the government purchased the property and then removed the homesteaders using fear and with force.    They also burned their belongings and didn't give many of them time to remove their stuff.    The idea of providing for ones self is so foreign to most people that you get looked at like an alien or outcast.  #0 years is a long time for a community to last perhaps their model of sharing with each other can be used on a purchased piece of land.
