Brad Wall is Canada’s favourite premier. That’s not an opinion, but a fact. All the polls have shown that nobody in the country is even close to Wall in terms of how strongly the voters feel about him.
On Monday April 4, 2016, voters matched the pollsters' expectations. Two out of every three people voted for Brad Wall’s Saskatchewan Party, Canada’s most popular small “c” conservative party. Wall’s party got 63% of the popular vote and more than 80% of the seats and this isn’t the first time his team received a commanding majority. It was third, an unmatched political success anywhere in Canada.
But in his victory speech last night, Canada’s most popular premier talked about success without gloating, faith without preaching, and gratitude without self-absorption. He is grateful for the opportunity to serve. His victory speech contained not even a hint of triumphalism. Brad isn’t about the boasting. You won’t find any Trump in this grateful family man from Swift Current who consistently offers three virtues that are too rare among professional politicians - grace, class and humility.
If someone asks, "do you know of a place where common-sense conservatism is practiced & rewarded?" the correct answer is Saskatchewan, under the leadership of Canada’s favourite Premier.
