As soon as the election is certified on November 29, council-elect John Hopkins will be sworn in as the representative in District 1, Position 2.
Since Nicole Martineau was appointed to the position, and the term does not end until December 31, 2013, as soon as someone is elected to the position, they take over.
For the December 6 meeting, Mr. Hopkins will be occupying the seat between Mr. Knutsen and Mrs. Brouillet.
