Premier Brad Wall isn't letting his fight with Thomas Mulcair disappear.

The federal NDP leader commented recently that the success of the energy sector in the west was hurting manufacturing in the east.

At his annual dinner speech in Regina Wall was applauded by the 2200 people in attendance for saying he will defend Saskatchewan interests and jobs.

"As long as the official opposition in Canada is not backing down from its policy which would hurt jobs in Saskatchewan, then I, we're, going to defend the interests of Saskatchewan."

Wall says usually federal NDP policy can be ignored but that isn't the case now that they could credibly form the national government.
