During the 2015 Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Annual General Assembly (AGA), the MNO Veterans’ Council held their annual general meeting where Rob Baskey was sworn in to his new position as the MNO Veterans’ Council Sergeant-at-arms.

Baskey, a sergeant with the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), began his career in law enforcement in 1990 with the North Bay Police Service. In 1995, he transferred to Mattawa, followed by working with the Provincial Violent Crime Linkage System (ViCLAS) Centre and the Orillia OPP Detachment, where he is currently the communications strategist for Community Mobilization and Engagement efforts.

In 2012, Baskey was seconded by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) to be deployed in the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) to train, mentor and advise the South Sudanese National Police Service and the Government of South Sudan.

The MNO Veterans’ Council is pleased to have Baskey’s experience added to their ranks.

Welcome aboard, Rob!
