Saskatoon Eastview MLA, Corey Tochor has said he is running for federal politics for the Conservative Party nomination in the federal riding of Saskatoon-University.
Last week the MLA announced that he was resigning as Speaker of the Saskatchewan Legislature, a position he’s held since May of 2016.
Tochor says he wants to help federal Conservative Party Leader Andrew Sheer become Prime Minister in the next federal election.
The former Speaker says people in Saskatoon-University are looking for a “fresh start”.
