Talk at last night’s Spaniard’s Bay council meeting took an unexpected turn when a former mayor began to ask questions about a controversial report now in the town’s hands.

The house in Carbonear where Trent Butt allegedly murdered his five-year-old daughter is now gone for good.
Wednesday morning, contractors made quick work of tearing down the house on Hayden Heights, which was heavily damaged by fire last April. It was during the fire call that Trent Butt and his daughter Quinn were found inside the home.
Police latter charged Trent Butt with first-degree murder and arson. A seven-day preliminary inquiry concluded last week, and the accused is now set to appear in Newfoundland and Labrador Supreme Court in St. John’s March 1 for arraignment. He has not entered pleas.
Carbonear council issued a demolition order last month, responding to complaints from the neighbourhood about the property’s presence.
