English term or phrase:on down
Dans un texte portant sur la couverture (de journalistes de la Saskatchewan) en direct lors d'une partie de la Coupe Grey :
Literally everyone in the province was celebrating in their own way that night; across all the demographics you can think of. It was a night when from the Premier on down, Saskatchewan was united in it’s joy and we feel our coverage (the only live coverage of the celebration) captured that historic moment in a very special way.
Given that the Premier is understood to be the highest-ranked figure in Sask., 'from the Premier (on) down' just means 'starting with the Premier (and going all the way to the lowest)', 'including everyone, led by the Premier'.
