Grant Scott is the new trustee-elect for Hornby Island following a by-election held March 2019. His appreciation for Hornby Island and all gulf islands comes from 30 years operating a small salmon troller on the coast and around the Salish Sea with his wife and two daughters. When not fishing, he is involved in land use planning and forestry with various levels of government including First Nations. Most recently he has worked with Conservancy Hornby Island seeking a more sustainable and ecosystem based approach to conserve and protect the all important herring which are essential for the salmon and orcas in the Salish Sea.
