Anger at Carbonear Council Meeting


The Council Meeting in Carbonear last night was anything but ordinary.

A group of protesters were outside the council chambers making noise.

In attendance was Gerard Butt, the brother of ex-Mayor Frank Butt.

Gerard Butt was asked to leave the chamber after standing up and asking questions.

Butt told council that they couldn’t adopt the minutes without a reading or the minutes in writing.

Carbonear has hired an outside law firm to handle the ousting of Frank Butt.

Frank Butt returns to court to appeal his removal on January 18th.
