W. Thomas Molloy Becomes Province's 22nd Lieutenant Governor

Released on March 21, 2018

W. Thomas Molloy was officially installed as the 22nd Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan today.

Molloy swore his oath of office before Chief Justice Robert G. Richards during a ceremony in the Legislative Chamber.  He was then proclaimed Lieutenant Governor by Premier Scott Moe.

“Saskatchewan’s Lieutenant Governors have always exemplified service to our people,” Moe said.  “Looking at the impact of Thomas’ life work to our province, our nation, and more specifically to Indigenous peoples across our country, I am confident he will continue with that tradition.  On behalf of the Government of Saskatchewan, I offer him my sincere congratulations and welcome him to this role.”

The installation ceremony was followed by the inspection of a military honour guard by the Lieutenant Governor, a 15 gun salute, fired by 10 Field Regiment of 38 Canadian Brigade Group, as well as a fly by from 15 Wing Moose Jaw.

As Lieutenant Governor, Molloy is the personal representative of Her Majesty the Queen of Canada in the province, and is responsible for granting Royal Assent to provincial laws, as well as summoning and dissolving the provincial legislature.

Under the Canadian Constitution, lieutenant governors are appointed by the federal government for a minimum of five years; however, there is no fixed term of office.
