The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


Feb 10, 2017

As the province overhauls Alberta's curriculum, The Press Gallery looks at how that has been politicized and the worries faced by volunteers taking part in the process. Join host Emma Graney with guests Stuart Thomson, Paula Simons and Graham Thomson as they talk learnin' at schools and funding from the government for education about broad climate change issues. The team also address the potential political fallout from the attack of a care worker at Elk Island Child and Youth Ranch. Good stuff from the gallery Stuart's pick: A Politico piece about how Donald Tump is vexed by the challenges of being president, and the scale of the U.S. government. Paula's pick: This fascinating read by Phil Galewitz in The Atlantic about pharmacies thriving in Kentucky's opioid-stricken towns. Emma's pick: Mike Thomson with BBC profiles a Syrian radio manager pushing back against jihadi militants with goat noises and football chants. Graham's pick: Science Magazine's look at how a culture clash at NOAA led to a flap over a high-profile warming pause study.
