The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


May 19, 2017

The Press Gallery team sticks to just one topic this week — the formation of the United Conservative Party. Join host Emma Graney with guests Stuart Thomson, Paula Simons and Graham Thomson as they discuss what's in the agreement, what it means for Alberta, and what made them all start snickering like eight-year-olds. Good stuff from the gallery Stuart's pick: This piece in The Atlantic called McMaster's Dilemma, about the U.S. national-security adviser and latest well-regarded official to risk his credibility for Donald Trump. Paula's pick: This nutty read by Tristin Hopper in the National Post, about the day former Canadian Prime Minister Mackenzie King met Hitler. Emma's pick: This Maclean's piece by Jason Markusoff about the fight to lead Alberta's united conservatives. Graham's pick: Another Atlantic piece, this time about how the Trump presidency will end.
