The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


Dec 19, 2015

The Press Gallery #116: The Notley and the Ivy Edition A stunning election upset. The end of a political dynasty. New faces in the legislature. A bold direction on climate change. Controversy in the farm sector. It’s been quite an extraordinary year to say the least in Alberta politics, and our group of panellists has some fun looking back at many of the memorable moments from 2015. Guest host Keith Gerein then puts the group through our annual year-end quiz, testing their knowledge on the events and personalities that shaped the past 12 months. Tune in, and find out how you stack up against legislature columnist Graham Thomson, city columnist Paula Simons, and legislature reporter Jodie Sinnema.
