From a punching threat in the hallowed halls of the legislative building to the opposition throwing shade at the government's labour legislation review, the press gallery team looks back at another week in Alberta politics. Join host Emma Graney with guests Stuart Thomson, Paula Simons and Graham Thomson to talk about the verbal fisticuffs between Derek Fildebrandt and Michael Connolly that apparently grew into a nearly-fight, a new rebate program to make homes more energy efficient, and the province's labour review. Good stuff from the gallery Stuart's pick: This piece from the New York Times Magazine about Mike Judge, the Bard of Suck. Paula's pick: Welcome to Pleistocene Park in The Atlantic, about Russian scientists trying to stave off catastrophic climate change — by resurrecting an Ice Age biome, complete with lab-grown woolly mammoths. Emma's pick: Another piece in The Atlantic, called Torching the Modern-Day Library of Alexandria, about a Google database containing 25 million books nobody is allowed to read. Graham's pick: This Telegraph piece about Yeonmi Park, who escaped from North Korea.
