Michael Wilson is originally from Manitoba but has been working in the town of Watson Lake, Yukon for the past four-and-a-half years.

He’s replacing outgoing CPO Vincent Duguay, who has left to join the RCMP.

Wilson is leaving for the Solicitor General Staff College in Edmonton for a six-week course and will be completing a Community Peace Officer Level One course to get his certification.

Watson Lake is a subarctic community of about 1,500 people and came to prominence in the early 1940s with the construction of a military airport in 1941 and the Alaska Highway in 1942.

“I heard about the opportunity and I thought it might be nice to be back closer to civilization,” he said. “Everything worked out, I came to the municipality and I liked what I saw. Seems like a great place to live.”

Wilson said he, his wife and their two children are enjoying themselves in their new community.

“It’s nice to be near a grocery store and restaurants all that good stuff,” he said.

In Watson Lake, Wilson did a lot of work dealing with wildlife but expects to be handling more traffic related issues here in the Pass, he said.
