Released on March 9, 2018
Premier Scott Moe announced today that Saskatchewan’s 22nd Lieutenant Governor, W. Thomas Molloy, will be sworn in during a ceremony at the Legislative Building on March 21, 2018.
“I look forward to Mr. Molloy assuming the role of Saskatchewan’s Lieutenant Governor,” Moe said. “The role comes with a rich history of service to our province; Mr. Molloy’s background as a lawyer and negotiator will see the people of Saskatchewan well served in the years ahead.”
Molloy is a respected lawyer and author from Saskatoon. He will replace the outgoing Lieutenant Governor Vaughn Solomon Schofield, who has held the position since 2012.
Molloy was appointed to the role by the federal government in January. Under the Canadian constitution, he will serve as Lieutenant Governor for a minimum of five years.
