The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


Feb 18, 2017

From a two-and-a-half-year battle to get the number of threats made against premiers to the current runaway, blazing clown car that is the PC leadership race, the Press Gallery team this week walk through a week of Alberta politics that revolved around the letter T. Host Emma Graney is joined by guests Stuart Thomson, Paula Simons and Keith Gerein to talk about those issues, as well as the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement between Europe and Canada, and what that means for Alberta farmers. Good stuff from the gallery Stuart's pick: Jana Pruden's piece in the Globe and Mail about how one Edmonton lawyer lost everything. Paula's pick: The production of Bust by Theatre Network, a dark comedy about two families whose lives are intrinsically tied to Alberta’s boom and bust economy. Emma's pick: An amusing, somewhat tongue-in-cheek look at the power of handshakes on the ABC, staring Canada's very own Justin Trudeau, and this name generator by the Sydney Morning Herald, called Spicerize My Name. Keith's pick: This Forbes article about how Jared Kushner won Donald Trump the White House.
