The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


Mar 3, 2017

Winter is coming — and so is the federal conservative leadership vote. The race made its way to Edmonton this week, with 13 of the 14 candidates debating policy as one held his own special fireside chat with supporters (sans fireside). Join host Emma Graney along with guests Stuart Thomson, Dave Breakenridge and Graham Thomson to talk about that, along with this week's throne speech and Premier Rachel Notley's trip to Washington D.C. Good stuff from the Gallery Dave's pick: This sad story about an Edmonton man who took his own life after being fleeced of $300,000; The former Rockford Peach inducted into the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame; Trainspotting, ahead of the film's soon to be released sequel. Stuart's pick: The book Nixonland, about how Dick Nixon rose from the political grave to seize and hold the U.S. presidency. Emma's pick: "In that moment, I loathed America" — celebrated Australian children's author Mem Fox on being detained in the U.S. Graham's pick: Postmedia reporter Janet French's eight-month investigation into the Edmonton Catholic school board.
