About Grant Scott

Grant Scott is serving his first term as Local Trustee for Hornby Island. His appreciation for Hornby, and all gulf islands, comes from 30 years operating a small salmon troller in the Salish Sea with his wife and two daughters. When not fishing, he is involved in land-use planning and forestry, with various government levels, including First Nations. Most recently, he has worked with Conservancy Hornby Island, seeking a more sustainable and ecosystem-based approach to conserve and protect herring, which are essential for the salmon and orcas in the Salish Sea.
