Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall says voice-over work for Disney studios is on his list of dream jobs when it comes time for him to look for work after political life.
Wall's list of dream jobs currently includes:
- Ambassador to the United States.
- Commissioner of the CFL.
- Voice actor for Disney.
Wall's career path arose Monday when he was asked about his interest in working in Washington having just returned from a visit to the American capital.
"I have said, publicly, that whenever ... this job's over -- or when the people have had enough -- what jobs would you be interested in?" he said when asked if he had ambitions to be an ambassador. "I mean I'd by lying if I didn't say that would be an interesting position to have."
In the same answer, Wall noted two other possibilities.
"I think I'd like to do that [ambassador to the U.S.], CFL commissioner or voiceovers for Disney," he said. "So those are all non sequiturs, but those things that would be neat to do."
In the past Wall has displayed a hidden talent for mimicking the voice of Homer Simpson from the long-running animated series, The Simpsons. He is also involved in minor football in Swift Current.
On a more serious note, Wall said his trip to Washington included several meetings with political leaders from both the Democratic and Republican parties where he pressed a number of issues important to Saskatchewan.
Recently, Wall signalled his eagerness to campaign for a third term as premier when the next Saskatchewan election is held.
The next vote was scheduled to take place Nov. 2, 2015. However, the law includes a provision to move the election if the campaign period overlaps with a federal election. The federal government, which also has provisions for a fixed election date, is currently expected to hold a vote Oct. 19, 2015.
Because of that overlap, Saskatchewan's election moves to the Monday of the following April, which is April 4, 2016.
