Brad Wall's third majority win signals a changed Saskatchewan
Brad Wall, leader of the Saskatchewan Party, received another resounding majority election victory on April 4, 2016, winning 51 seats in the 61-seat legislature.
Wall's third consecutive majority government puts him on the path to rival another long-serving and much-loved Saskatchewan premier, Tommy Douglas.
And while the results of the vote came as a bit of a yawn to residents of the wheat province, Canadians outside Saskatchewan might be surprised by the stamp the small "c" conservative premier is making across the prairies and beyond.
With the federal Conservative Party in transition, many see Premier Wall as a leading voice for the struggling movement.
