Premier Brad Wall marks last day in Sask. Legislature Thursday

It's the end of an era Thursday in Saskatchewan Politics.

It will also be Premier Brad Wall's last day in the legislative assembly.

There will be several tributes to Wall during question period at the legislature this morning.

That faded in recent months after his government tabled an austerity budget in the spring.

Wall was first elected as the member of the legislative assembly for Swift Current in 1999.

Wall is the 14th premier in Saskatchewan, and is the only Saskatchewan party leader ever to win three stright Provincial elections, winning the 2016 election 51-10.

Wall announced in August that he was retiring from politics after almost 14 years as the leader of the Saskatchewan Party.

He will stay on as premier and leader of the Saskatchewan Party until January 27, 2018 when a new leader is chosen.
