2 Cape Breton regional councillors out of action due to health issues
Council office to handle district matters until their return
Two Cape Breton Regional Municipality councillors are recovering from serious health issues.
District 4 Coun. Claire Detheridge has been treated for some weeks in hospital in Halifax for a "brain bleed."
She has represented her area on municipal councils for more than 30 years and is president of the Union of Nova Scotia Municipalities.
District 2 Coun. Charlie Keagan has suffered a heart attack.
In a statement, Mayor Cecil Clarke says constituents of the two councillors should contact the CBRM council office with any matters of concern.
