Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon will be touring the West Kootenay area this month and is making a stop in Rossland, May 12.

While every detail of her stop in the alpine city has not been made public, she will be meeting mayor and council before heading off to tour the schools and speak with students.

Guichon was sworn-in on November 2, 2012 as the twenty-ninth Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia.

Before becoming Lieutenant Governor, Her Honour owned and operated Gerard Guichon Ranch Limited in the Nicola Valley.

In previous years, she completed a two-year term as the president of the B.C. Cattlemen’s Association and served on the Provincial Task Force on Species at Risk.

Additionally, Guichon has been a part of the Ranching Task Force for B.C. and the British Columbia Agri-Food Trade Advisory Council and studied Holistic Management.

The Lieutenant Governor has ample knowledge and background in natural sciences and the workings of livestock, things that are of value in an area such as the West Kootenays.

Her appearance in Rossland is sure to leave an impact on the students in attendance.
