Longtime Northern Trappers’ Advocate Retires

Thursday, December 01, 2005 at 15:31



Today marks the last day of work for Franklin Carriere.


After thirty years of working in the civil service in northern Saskatchewan, he officially retires this afternoon.


He has most recently been working with Saskatchewan Northern Affairs in La Ronge as a liaison for northern trappers, commercial fishers and wild rice growers.


Carriere says he wishes to thank everyone who helped him out along the way.


He says he will still stay busy in the region by trapping, and hopes to be out on his trap line tomorrow.


Marius Rediron and Emily Charles will assume his duties at Northern Affairs.
