Reaction is rolling in after the announcement from Premier Brad Wall yesterday, that he is retiring from politics.
"I think Brad Wall has been absolutely fantastic for this province," shares Sask Party's Lori Carr, MLA for Estevan, "and I will be very sad to see him go."
"A couple of days ago it was the 20th anniversary of the formation of the Saskatchewan Party so that was a milestone in itself and now Brad Wall has served 10 years as premier and he has decided to step down."
"He was actually an MLA for a longer time period than that but he has served as premier of the province for the past 10 years."
She adds that she feels the his leadership has helped the province grow.
"I truly believe he has made this province stronger and a better place to live. The population has increased, we have 60,000 more jobs in the province than we did 10 years ago. It's just a better place to be."
"In his comments, saying that he was going to step down from being Premier, one of the first things he said is he is proud of Saskatchewan and he is proud of the people of Saskatchewan because without all of them, he wouldn't be where he is and we wouldn't be where we are as a province."
As for the future, she shares that she is excited to see where it will lead.
"We have a great caucus. We have a lot of very strong leaders within our caucus. I'm not really sure what's going to happen, who is going to put their name forward, I'm excited to see but I know that we will find a great leader within that group of people."
Mr. Wall will remain as premier until a new leader of the Saskatchewan Party has been elected.
