História biográfica

Herbert Junior Swan was born on January 10, 1927 in Demaine, Saskatchewan to Herbert and Freida Swan. He received his primary and secondary education in Demaine, completed Grade 12 at the Saskatoon Technical Institute and attended Success Business College.

Prior to entering provincial politics, Swan operated a grain seed business and farmed in the Beechy area. Swan served on the Outlook School Division Board, was president of the Saskatchewan School Trustees' Association (1976-1978), and was a director of the Canadian School Trustees' Association.

Swan was first elected to the Saskatchewan Legislature in 1978 and served as a Progressive Conservative MLA for the Rosetown-Elrose constituency until 1991. From 1978 to 1982, he was Opposition Critic for Municipal Affairs, Social Services, and Agriculture. Swan served as Speaker of the Legislative Assembly from 1982 to1986 and was international president of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (1984-1985). He served in the Grant Devine Cabinet as Minister of the Environment (1986-1987) and Minister of the Environment and Public Safety (1987-1989).

From 1986 to 1989, Swan was Minister Responsible for the Water Appeal Board; Minister Responsible for Saskatchewan Water Corporation; Chairman of the Regulations Review Committee; and member of the Municipal Financing Corporation.

Swan's cabinet appointments were discontinued on October 3, 1989 when Devine reorganized his Cabinet. Swan retired from political life in 1991. Bernhard Wiens (NDP) became the MLA for the Rosetown-Elrose constituency in October 1991.

Swan married Anita Syroishka on July 1, 1949. They had four children: Karen, Bonnie, Kirk and Heather. He died in Saskatoon on May 28, 2013.
