REGINA - Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall, who last month was called sneaky by Quebec Premier Pauline Marois, is saying goodbye to all his — quote — "friends" in the Parti Quebecois.

In a Twitter post, Wall bids "my sincere farewell" and signs the tweet "Le Ratoureux".

Marois used the Quebecois slang last month to describe her Prairie counterpart as a sneaky person who always tries to trip her up.

There is no direct French translation for "ratoureux," though it can be used to describe someone who is cunning, wily or mischievous.

At the time, Wall also used Twitter to address Marois's comment and said he only ever tries to trip up Saskatchewan's official Opposition.

Marois was the big loser in the Quebec election Monday — her party went down to crushing defeat and she lost in her own riding.
