Marshall loses CBRM District 3 seat but still grateful for time serving the community

ESKASONI, N.S. — The Cape Breton Regional Municipality’s first-ever Mi’kmaq municipal councillor took his defeat in stride at his home in Eskasoni First Nation on Saturday after losing his seat for the second time.

Esmond (Blue) Marshall was first elected to CBRM council in 2004 becoming the municipality’s first Mi’kmaq councillor. He then lost his seat in 2008. And in 2016 he became the District 3 representative again, serving for the past four years.

“I really don’t mind,” said the 55-year-old. “You win and you lose, that’s how I look at it.” Full story here.
