Sask Party MLA loses nomination

Alan Kerpan loses nomination for Saskatoon Eastview to Terry Alm after deciding a few months ago to run for the nomination in that riding instead of his current one of Carrot River Valley, as Carrot River Valley has already selected Fred Bradshaw as their candidate leaving Mr. Kerpan without a riding.

I'm sure there was a logical explanation as to why he switched ridings in the first place but I don't know what it was, and as logical as it might of seemed to him at the time, it seems to have backfired on him.

The only thing I can think of is that he thought that the Sask Party would have a better chance of taking Saskatoon Eastview with im as the candidate while his current riding would likely remain a safe seat for the Sask Party.
