Souris West native Greg Peters is sticking around the Senate after his recent re-appointment as the Usher of the Black Rod.
The governor-in-council first appointed Peters in 2013 to serve as the 17th Usher of the Black Rod for a five-year term.
He was re-appointed effective Oct. 1.
Peters is a 32-year veteran of the RCMP and is a recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Gold and Diamond Jubilee Medals, and is a member of the Royal Victorian Order.
The Usher of the Black Rod is the most senior protocol officer in Parliament.
