Local officials were surprised to hear of Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall’s sudden resignation Thursday. Most commended the premier for his accomplishments in his long 10 years in his role. Many also acknowledged the premier had a tough job bringing in this year’s austere budget.
Wall had said he had decided to retire from politics after reaching the 10-year mark serving as premier.
Town of Battleford Mayor Ames Leslie said he didn’t expect the Premier would retire now.
