35 years to serve Ba­got­ville com­mu­ni­ty

Le Vortex de Bagotville - - MOT COMMANDANT -

When he ac­cep­ted a part­time student job as a gas sta­tion at­ten­dant at the CFB Ba­got­ville sta­tion in 1983, Pa­trick Bras­sard was far from sus­pec­ting that he would still be em­ployed by Ca­nex 35 years la­ter.

Upon com­ple­tion of his trai­ning, Mr. Bras­sard ob­tai­ned a job with the NonPu­blic Funds ac­coun­ting de­part­ment, where he was res­pon­sible of ac­coun­ting for Ca­nex. In 1994, Mr. Bras­sard ac­cep­ted a su­per­vi­so­ry po­si­tion at Ca­nex in Ba­got­ville. He will be­come the ma­na­ger in 1998, while the ma­na­ge­ment of the trade is en­ti­re­ly trans­fer­red to ci­vi­lians. "The years pas­sed ve­ry qui­ck­ly. What I like is ser­ving the people of Ba­got­ville, "ex­plains Mr. Bras­sard, ad­ding that he still loves his job. As for re­ti­re­ment, he is not consi­de­ring it yet, re­cal­ling that he star­ted wor­king for Ca­nex at a young age. "I'm still young, I'm on­ly 54 years old. Re­ti­re­ment will cer­tain­ly not be un­til 60 years old. I still get up eve­ry mor­ning with the taste of co­ming to work. I'm hap­py to do what I do and that's the main thing, "concludes the one who re­cei­ved this sum­mer a cer­ti­fi­cate ce­le­bra­ting his 35 years of ser­vice with the Ca­na­dian Forces Mo­ral and Wel­fare Ser­vices.
