The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


Mar 24, 2017

The dust has settled on the Progressive Conservative leadership race, but the work is just beginning to unite Alberta's conservatives. The Press Gallery team take a look at the weekend's very strange leadership convention — complete with an assault charge, booing and expensive beers — and what Jason Kenney's victory means for Alberta politics. Join host Emma Graney with regular guests Stuart Thomson, Paula Simons and Graham Thomson to talk everything PC leadership, and take brief look at how Saskatchewan's budget got a look in to the news here this week. Good stuff from the gallery Stuart's pick: A column by Michael Byers in the Globe and Mail about Andrew Potter's recent departure from McGill. Paula's pick: A Mother Jones timeline about the Donald Trump-Russia scandal. Emma's pick: This Jason Kenney profile by James Wood, about Kenney's journey from 'Snack Pack' to leader of the Progressive Conservatives, and this 2014 long-read in The Walrus about the new PC leader. Graham's pick: This piece in Time Magazine called Can Trump Handle the Truth. Also, Paula Simons' latest column on Serenity.
