The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


May 16, 2015

It’s been 10 days since Albertans embraced the idea of an NDP government at the ballot box. This week, The Press Gallery, the Journal’s weekly provincial politics podcast, explores how the transition to Premier-designate Rachel Notley’s team of New Democrats is going and how the different parties have responded to this dramatically reshaped legislature. Host Sarah O’Donnell also talks with provincial affairs reporter Mariam Ibrahim, city columnist Paula Simons and senior reporter Sheila Pratt about an investigation into shredding launched by Alberta’s privacy and public interest commissioners, MLA training day and new greenhouse gas targets set by the federal government Friday morning. The show concludes with the panel’s Good Stuff from the Gallery picks.
