STATEMENT: Office of the Mayor on the passing of David Muise
The flags at City Hall in Sydney are at half mast to mark the passing of David Muise.
“On behalf of the Cape Breton Regional Municipality Council and staff, we extend our heartfelt condolences to David’s family. His many, many friends and colleagues are mourning him today,” said Mayor Cecil Clarke.
Muise served as Mayor of the Cape Breton Regional Municipality from 1997 to 2000. Prior to his election as Mayor, Muise served in the Nova Scotia Legislature as the member for Cape Breton West from 1978 to 1981.
Muise was also the Solicitor and Clerk for the former Municipality of the County of Cape Breton from 1982 to 1995.
“I will always fondly remember his keen wit and sense of humour. His ability to tell an engaging and hilarious story was unmatched, “said Clarke. “David represented the very best of who we are as a people. He was a lawyer, a Rotarian and Parliamentarian, but above all, he was a great Cape Bretoner.”
