The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


Feb 3, 2017

A panel tasked with reforming the child intervention system began in Edmonton this week, but the fact it's not being recorded in Hansard or anywhere else has some folks worried about the veil of secrecy that continues to surround the system. Join Press Gallery podcast host Emma Graney along with guests Sarah O'Donnell, Paula Simons and Stuart Thomson as they talk about the panel, an inquiry into the tragic death of a care worker, and how Alberta politics reacted to the U.S. travel ban and the Quebec mosque killings. Good stuff from the gallery Sarah's pick: Journalistic lessons from Propublica, taken from covering Putin. Paula's pick: If you're feeling bad about the state of the world, at least it's not the worst year ever, according to these history professors. Emma's pick: This Maclean's magazine piece from Jason Markusoff about the new underground railroad bringing refugees north to Canada. Stuart's pick: This piece from Politico about how distrust in Trump’s White House has sparked leaks and confusion.
