The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


Dec 8, 2017

The Press Gallery team loves a good interprovincial spat, so this week's offering from Saskatchewan banning Alberta licence plates on worksites was an obvious choice for the weekly politics wrap.  Join host Emma Graney with guests Clare Clancy, Graham Thomson and Paula Simons to discuss the great plate debate, as well as new legislation regulating political action committees and movement on the Kinder Morgan pipeline.  Good stuff from the Gallery Clare's pick: The Heaven's Gate podcast, about the mass suicide in a cult. Paula's pick: This excellent read in The Economist about the war in Yemen, a pointless conflict that has caused the worst humanitarian crisis in the world.  Emma's pick: This Politico investigation about the one of the dirtiest places in America, Tar Creek, and why Trump’s EPA chief didn't prosecute allegations of wrongdoing during a federal buyout program. Graham's pick: This CBC news piece on how North Korea survives on the proceeds of crime.  ** For all the links, head to http://edmontonjournal.com/tag/the-press-gallery
