Corner Gas Day will coincide with CTV's broadcast of the final episode of the comedy series after six seasons.

Wall signed the official proclamation in Regina with series star and creator Brent Butt present.

The show, set in the fictional town of Dog River, was shot in Regina and the village of Rouleau, 70 kilometres southwest of the city.

Butt, 42, is from Tisdale, Sask.

"We want to thank Saskatchewan's own Brent Butt, the Corner Gas producers, cast and crew for many hours of laughter," Wall said in a news release.
