There’s two different opinions regarding whether on not Tim Probe should be allowed back of council in the RM of Sherwood.
One of those opinions comes from Probe himself.
Probe, who was recently acquitted of corruption and breach of trust charges, was removed from council after the Ombudsman determined he also had a conflict of interest.
But despite the fact he’s well aware he may not be well received, Probe said he has unfinished business.
“Do I have a real deep desire to be back there? No,” he admitted. “But, I want to finish out the term. I never quit at anything.”
On the other side, the opinion Probe shouldn’t and won’t return is shared by many, including Sherwood Deputy Reeve Carl Husum. Until an appeal of the Ombudsman’s ruling is heard, Husum said the ruling will be upheld.
“That is still in effect, even though he is appealing it,” said Husum. “The seat will remain vacant until such time as the courts have ruled on his appeal.”
No word on a date when the appeal will be heard.
