Released on March 8, 2000

Justice Minister Chris Axworthy today announced that Sid Robinson, Director of

the Northern Area Office of the Saskatchewan Legal Aid Commission, has been

appointed a judge of the Provincial Court of Saskatchewan in La Ronge.



"Judge Robinson's vast knowledge of criminal and family law will serve him well

in his new role as Provincial Court Judge," Axworthy said. "His 20 years

experience living in the north and appearing in northern courts has given him a

unique understanding of the justice issues facing northern residents."



Judge Robinson earned a Bachelor of Laws from the University of Saskatchewan in

1976 and was called to the bar in Saskatchewan in 1978.



He began his career as a staff lawyer with the Meadow Lake Legal Services

Society. He then went on to work at the Yetha Ayisiniwuk Legal Services

Society in La Ronge, before becoming the Area Director of the Saskatchewan

Legal Aid Commission's Battlefords Area Office.



Judge Robinson has worked with Legal Aid's Northern Area Office in La Ronge

since 1986 and has been Director since 1992.



Judge Robinson takes an active interest in his community and has been involved

with several different community organizations. He currently serves as the

president of the Lac La Ronge Conservancy Association Inc.
