Canadian province Saskatchewan re-elects right-leaning government

April 4 (Reuters) - The Canadian province of Saskatchewan, stung by collapsing prices of key products potash and crude oil, re-elected its right-leaning Saskatchewan Party government on Monday, CBC News projected.

Brad Wall, the province’s charismatic leader since 2007, led his party to its third straight victory, a result that was expected but a first for a Saskatchewan conservative party.

CBC projected the Saskatchewan Party will form a majority government in the western Canadian province.

Saskatchewan is the home base of Potash Corp of Saskatchewan , and rivals Mosaic Co and Agrium Inc also operate potash mines there.
