The Green Party has a new candidate in Prince Albert after former nominee Miranda Friske withdrew due to unspecified personal reasons.

Kerri Wall will be the new nominee, according to the party’s website. There is no bio or photo on her campaign page. (UPDATE: the Green Party says Wall is originally from Prince Albert, but now lives in British Columbia.)

The Golden Star, a newspaper based in Golden, B.C., has a story from June 20, 2019 about someone named Kerri Wall seeking to represent the Green Party federally in the riding of Kootenay-Columbia. The Daily Herald was unable to confirm if this is the same Kerri Wall who will be running in Prince Albert.

Friske did not officially announce her withdrawl from the race, but Green Party campaign volunteer Paula Thiesen confirmed it on Monday.

“It was a personal decision she had to make and I can’t say anything more,” she said.

Thiesen added that Friske may consider running provincially for the Green Party in the future.

Wall’s nomination means the Green Party will have a full slate of candidates running in Saskatchewan.
