John Craven Jones and Henry W. Robinson are elected to Salt Spring Island council

When the township of Salt Spring was incorporated in Spring 1873, John Craven Jones, the island school teacher, and Henry William Robinson, originally from Bermuda, were elected to the seven-member council. Robinson served as the council secretary.
Salt Spring Island remained incorporated for about 10 years. Today the island is an unincorporated rural Electoral District within the Capital Regional District (CRD).
