As Warden since 2020 and Councillor for District 2 (Grand Étang/St.-Joseph-du-Moine/the Margarees) since 2016, Warden Cranton was a kind and dedicated voice for residents across Inverness County.

“Laurie’s legacy will live on, and he will be remembered as a kind, supportive, inspirational leader and advocate for the Inverness County, District 2 and the accessibility community,” said Deputy Warden Bonny MacIsaac. “Warden Cranton will be greatly missed by his family, friends, colleagues, and the numerous organizations to which he generously volunteered his time and support.”

The Municipality of the County of Inverness Council and staff would like to express their deepest condolences to Warden Cranton’s family and friends. The Municipality requests that media be respectful of Warden Cranton’s family’s privacy at this time and direct all inquiries to CAO Keith MacDonald.
