Salmon Cove Removes Councillor

Gary Butt has been removed from the Salmon Cove Town Council. After 33 years, four councillors voted to vacate his seat under conflict of interest. The issue arose from two year's ago when Butt damaged his truck moving picnic tables for council and while he paid to have the repairs himself, he was advised by council and staff that he should request council to reimburse him for the damages. Butt did not take part in the debate to reimburse him.

He took to Facebook calling out the Mayor and the Councillors who did not vote for him to remain.
