Between an expanded school nutrition program and more affordable day care, Premier Rachel Notley was all about the kids this week in Alberta politics. Join Press Gallery host Emma Graney and guests Stuart Thomson, Paula Simons and Graham Thomson to talk about those announcements, as well as changes to Alberta's $1.2-billion AISH program. The team also takes a look at the political implications of the impending flood of collective bargaining facing the NDP government. Good stuff from the Gallery Stuart's pick: This Pacific NW magazine piece about Pearl Jam, from a Seattle basement to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Paula's pick: This Vox article about why the alt-right loves single-payer health care. Emma's pick: This piece on The Nation about Hunter S. Thompson predicting the rise of Trumpism. Graham's pick: On the anniversary of the famous battle, Paula Simon's piece about Vimy Ridge and the book Vimy: The Battle and the Legend.
