New Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the appointment of Russell Mirasty as the new Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan. Mirasty, a member of the Lac La Ronge Indian Band, has dedicated much of his life to public service, including his 36-year career in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). He was the first Indigenous person to command an RCMP division. Even after his retirement, Mirasty continued to make a difference in Saskatchewan, working to improve the province's education system.
