A local municipal councillor faces a pair of charges, including assault.
County of Stettler Coun. Joe Gendre of Erskine made his first appearance in Stettler Provincial Court last Thursday.
At a trial scheduled for April 11 of next year, he faces charges of assault and mischief to property.
“It’s a family matter,” Gendre told the Independent on Thursday before he entered the courtroom accompanied by his wife, Circun.
“I’m embarrassed about it.”
