Councillor Terry Richardson

My name is Terry Richardson and I have been a councillor in Pabineau First Nation for the last 7 years.

By way of introduction, I have spent 25 years in the Canadian Armed Forces in a multitude of positions, mostly in the administrative and financial fields.  I have also had the opportunity to serve in many theatres of operations which, as one can imagine, are very demanding. For example, I served in the Gulf in the country of Qatar as a Nuclear Biological Defense operator. I also served in Sarajevo, the capital and largest city of Bosnia, in the construction and engineering field. I served twice in Afghanistan, the first time working in the finance department and later at the “OMLET,” where I worked on mentoring the Afghan army in the financial field. My second journey to Afghanistan was designed to assist in rectifying a 65 million dollar outstanding debt that Canada owed to the American army. In the two months that I was there, I was able to account for all but $5 million of this debt.

I have had the privilege of serving my community for the last 7 years and seeing it grow over the years. I have served as a councillor collecting NO SALARY and therefore this has enabled to community to take the salary that I would have collected and hire more employee’s thus creating capacity in our community.
