Alberta's third quarter economic forecast was released by Finance Minister Joe Ceci this week — spoiler alert, the deficit's still pegged for $10.8 billion. Join Press Gallery host Emma Graney along with guests Stuart Thomson and Paula Simons to take a look at what that means for Alberta's coffers, and how one of them almost failed accounting at university. The team also talks transparency — or the lack thereof — at the child intervention panel and in how the Government of Alberta treats freedom of information requests. Good stuff from the Gallery Stuart's Pick: This New York Times piece by Abigail Deutsch about napping on the subway. Emma's Pick: This BBC News Magazine story about Jack Barsky, the KGB spy who lived the American dream. Paula's Pick: This amusing Financial Times piece about Oxford distancing itself from Trump favourite Ted Malloch.
