Last week, Thomas Molloy became the 22nd Lieutenant-Governor of the Province of Saskatchewan.
"I think it was an exciting day in Saskatchewan," shared Lori Carr, MLA for Estevan. "Vaugh Solomon Schofield (the previous Lieutenant-Governor) did such a fantastic job, it will be interesting to see how Mr Molloy handles his position."
The Lieutenant-Governor is the Queen's representative in the province.
"As far as our legislature goes, he has a pretty important role right now. Basically, when we pass bills through the house, it has to go through something called Royal Assent before it actually becomes law. So we do all out committee work, all our proceedings, we do all of our motions in the House and then before it actually becomes into effect, he is the one who actually has to give it Royal Assent to make it official."
Mr Molloy has served as a lawyer for a number of years and will use those skills in his new role.
"Listening to his history, his biography, he is very much into First Nations issues and treaty rights. With everything that is going on in the Province of Saskatchewan, he feels it's very time that he is the Lieutenant-Governer at this point in time."
Mr Molloy will serve a five-year term as Lieutenant-Governor.
