Opinion polls routinely peg Brad Wall as Canada's most popular premier, but did you know he's also been a minor league football coach, loves classic cars, and debates super heroes with his son? Read on to find out more.
1. The Incredible Brad Wall
When it comes to super heroes, Brad Wall likes The Incredible Hulk for a number of reasons. He believes that with The Hulk on your team, you're unbeatable, unstoppable, and everyone else on your team is redundant. That, and The Hulk is green - much like his party's colours.
2. He likes his sports rough
For sports, Wall's passion runs deep when it comes to the CFL and the pride of Saskatchewan in the form of The Riders. Being such a big fan, Wall owns several jerseys - some of which are vintage.
3. He's a leader in more than just politics
Speaking of football, Wall has coached minor league teams. His last stint as a coach came to an end when he had to deal with and tackle the last election. Wall, however, is thinking about becoming a referee.
4. Any other job?
When asked what other jobs he would ever like to have, Wall says would like to do voice over work for Pixar, mostly so he could wear shorts and a t-shirt to the office.
5. He knows his province
The premier has a plethora of knowledge on the province, having gone on many camping trips to "get away" from the job when he needs a break. If he had to go anywhere outside the country, he says he'd pay Arizona a visit.
6. Brad's nickname
Ironically, his nickname in school happened to be Wally. No relation to the popular Pixar character Wall-E.
7. What keeps him motivated
The premier says his favourite part of the job is making progress
8. Wall admires those that serve
Among those that the premier admires, is Hewitt Murch, a Saskatchewaner that landed at Normandy on D-Day. In 2011, Mr. Murch was presented with the "Legionnaire of the Year Award" in recognition of his years of community service.
9. His bucket list is a small one
Wall's life goals aren't too complicated - he wants to travel more and own an old-school 1969 Roadrunner.
10. He has excellent taste in television
One of Wall's favourite TV shows is The Source with Ezra Levant. He's also a big fan of Master Chef and is reading a biography about Wyatt Earp.
