The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


May 26, 2017

From labour law to electoral boundaries, Alberta politics saw a whole range of change thrown at it this week. Join Press Gallery host Emma Graney with guests Stuart Thomson, Paula Simons and Keith Gerein to take a look at a swath of updates to Alberta's labour legislation, the Auditor General's report outlining overhauls for the health system, and how voting might change in the next election. Good stuff from the gallery Stuart's pick: This profile about political reporter Maggie Haberman, in Elle Magazine. Paula's pick: Dan Carlin's Hardcore Histories podcast. Emma's pick: As Australia commemorates the 50th anniversary of the 1967 referendum, a few pieces stick out, including this read on ABC by Indigenous journalist Stan Grant, this explainer about what the referendum was about, and this New York Times piece in which Australia’s stolen generations tell their stories. Keith's pick: Alberta's auditor general report about the provincial healthcare system. *For links to all the stories, head to http://edmontonjournal.com/tag/the-press-gallery
