Scott Aitchison Submits His Resignation As Mayor Of Huntsville


On Monday October 28, 2019, Town of Huntsville Mayor Scott Aitchison provided the Municipal Clerk with his resignation as Mayor of the Town of Huntsville to take place effective October 28, 2019 at 11:59 p.m.  As per section 262 (1) of the Municipal Act, 2001, Council will declare the seat vacant at their next meeting to be held as a Special Council meeting on Tuesday, November 12, 2019 at 1:00 p.m.

Mayor Aitchison reflects back on his time as Mayor, “It has been an honour and a privilege to serve the people of Huntsville as Mayor over the past five years. I look forward to continuing to represent all of the constituents in Parry Sound-Muskoka in my new position as MP.”


  1. He left his post before his comission ended. They are now claiming it is going to cost $215,000 to replace him. He can either pay the costs to replace his position or stay in his current position. He chose to leave.

  2. Aitchison said “we’re going to make sure we get our fair share, come hell or high water.” That’s much harder to do in opposition. Once again Parry Sound Muskoka goes to the back of the line. Aitchison couldn’t care less about affordable housing costs for residents of Muskoka. Remember Aitchison is one of the District of Muskoka bullies who illegally tried to force extremely expensive, old, leaky sewers on residents in Bracebridge. So expensive that some seniors would have lost their homes. District water and sewer is $200+/month and rising after massive, crippling connection costs. $100/month even if you have zero usage. Residents, with the help of the Province, educated the DIstrict on the Municipal Act, fought back and won.
    Wasaga Beach failed in court to force sewers followed by Kawartha Lakes dropping that action. In spite of all this Aitchison also voted to force sewers on residents a second time. Almost no one has hooked up after receiving a letter from the District demanding that they do. Just refer the District to the 2001 Municipal Act in Section 86 (1)(d) under Specific Municipal Powers. It’s crystal clear. Aitchison only represents the interests of the District, not residents.
