The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


Sep 6, 2019

The big news out of Alberta politics this week was, of course, the MacKinnon panel report, which is slated to guide the UCP's spending over the party's four-year mandate as government.

Join Press Gallery host Emma Graney with guests Clare Clancy, Dave Breakenridge and the Calgary Herald's Chris Varcoe to unpack the 26 recommendations, what it means for Alberta, provincial policy and the path to balance. The team also takes a look at transparency, possible legislation out of the report and the political fallout.

The Press Gallery also farewells a very special podcast pal (we're not crying, you're crying).

Good Stuff from the Gallery

Clare's pick: With the death of former Zimbabwe dictator Robert Mugabe, Clare recommends you read When a Crocodile Eats the Sun, a memoir of Africa by journalist Peter Godwin.

Emma's pick: Emma recommends you dive into the excellent multi-part series from The Walrus, which details seven cases of corruption around the world.

Dave's pick: Dave recommends a disturbing but important read from The Atlantic, called Why Don’t Police Catch Serial Rapists?
