The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


Nov 24, 2017

Pipelines and parties -- what more could you ask for in a week of Alberta politics? Join Press Gallery host Emma Graney with guests Clare Clancy, Paula Simons and Graham Thomson — who are sadly all without party hats — as they talk about Alberta Party politics and the premier's cross-country pipeline promotion tour. The team also touches on a private member's bill set to be introduced in the house Monday, to help protect recipients of the Assured Income for the Severely Handicapped program. Good stuff from the gallery Clare's pick: This fascinating read from Gizmodo about the last of the world's iron lungs.  Paula's pick: This piece from Vanity Fair about what Donald Trump told high-ranking Russian envoys when he leaked classified, highly sensitive Israeli intelligence operation in May.  Emma's pick: In a nod to our friends south of the border and their weird November Thanksgiving, this even weirder read from the Washington Post about the wild turkey gangs plaguing suburbs across the USA.  Graham's pick: This piece in the Edmonton Journal and Sun by Press Gallery host Emma Graney ("Thanks, Graham!" Emma says). It fact checks misinformation floating around about the carbon tax hike on Jan. 1.  ** Find the links to all of our Good Stuff reads at http://edmontonjournal.com/tag/the-press-gallery
