The Municipality is saddened to learn of the passing of former Mayor and Councillor Ted Linley on Saturday, June 25, 2022. We extend sincere condolences to Ted’s family and friends during this difficult time.

Mr. Linley was a pillar within the Community.  He proudly served a total of 26 years on the Municipal Councils of the Village of Iron Bridge and Municipality of Huron Shores. He cared deeply for his Community and Constituents, and went above and beyond in all of his roles on Council. The generous time and energy given by Mr. Linley will continue to benefit the Community going forward. We aspire to follow the tremendously positive legacy Mr. Linley has left behind. He will be dearly missed. Flags at Municipal facilities will be flown at half-mast in recognition of Ted’s passing.
