With Alberta's budget now confirmed for Oct. 24, the government this week floated a couple of snippets at the AUMA convention about what we might see in the UCP's first set of complete fiscal plans.
Join Press Gallery host Emma Graney and guests Moira Wyton, Keith Gerein and Dave Breakenridge to talk about what else happened at the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association convention in Edmonton.
The team also takes you to what might be the oddest political press conference of 2019 thus far, and visits the court decision that granted B.C. a temporary injunction against Alberta's so-called turn-off-the-taps legislation.
Dave's pick: Listen Up, a new podcast with the lads from Oasis.
Keith's pick: This excellent piece on the Burnaby North-Seymour riding in Vancouver, the epicentre of the Trans Mountain pipeline battle.
Emma's pick: Emma suggests you go visit Chobe National Park in Botswana and Victoria Falls in Zambia. Failing that, she'd like you to read How The West Was Lost by Zambian economist Dambisa Moyo.
Moira's pick: Moira has a couple of intertwined recommendations for you this week, both revolving around the film Hustlers — this 2015 piece from The Cut called The Hustlers At Scores, and this read on HuffPost about how Canadian sex workers felt about the movie.
