Much like his B.C. counterpart, Premier Brad Wall still gets an extra salary from the Saskatchewan Party.

This issue has been raised for a second time because of the news headlines generated about Christy Clark.

Since 2011, Clark has received about $277,000 from the BC Liberal Party to top-up her government salary.

Much like he first did in 2007, Wall receives about $37,000 from the Saskatchewan Party each year for business outside of his legislative duties.

The money is viewed as a payment for events like leaders’ dinners, speeches and the like. It has been pointed out by party insiders that Wall does not hold private exclusive-type events for patron-like guests.

Wall's extra salary is reported publicly each year and was cleared by the Conflict of Interest Commissioner's office.

Wall and Clark are the only premiers that receive such a salary, others have their expenses covered.
