The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


Jan 20, 2017

From this week's cabinet shuffle to the newly announced child intervention panel and the PC leadership race with more twists and turns than a grand prix race track, The Press Gallery team reviews this week in Alberta politics. Join host Emma Graney with guests Dave Breakenridge, Paula Simons and Stuart Thomson to look back at this week. Good stuff from the gallery Dave's picks: This piece in the Edmonton Journal by Liane Faulder about how kitchen culture can lead to mental illness and addiction, and the new single from band Spoon. Paula's picks: A story in the Independent about the growing political upheaval in Gambia as election victor Adama Barrow is declared president in exile. And, for those chasing some live entertainment, Fortune Falls being performed in Edmonton by Catalyst Theatre. Emma's picks: Two pieces about the PC leadership race: Jason Markusoff in Maclean's magazine (The Alberta PCs are burning. That’s fine by Jason Kenney) and PC Party civil war descends to new depths of incivility by Paula Simons in the Edmonton Journal. Stuart's pick: A new podcast about U.S. politics by former Obama speechwriters, Pod Save America.
