Another week in Alberta politics and another squabble about pipelines. This week, as British Columbia tries to sort out who's going to run the province, Alberta Premier Rachel Notley doubled down on her commitment to getting the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion built. Join host Emma Graney with guests Stuart Thomson, Paula Simons and Graham Thomson to talk about the implications of the B.C. election, and an unemployed oil worker protest this week that had some interesting political asides. The team also discusses the child death review legislation introduced by government on Tuesday. Good stuff from the gallery Stuart's pick: The New York Times obituary of author Denis Johnson, who wrote winner whose novels and short stories about junkies, down-and-out travellers, drifters and violent men. Paula's pick: This Time magazine profile of Jared Kusher. Emma's pick: This amusing read from Tristin Hopper at the National Post about the wackiness facing post-election B.C. Graham's pick: This piece in the Economist about the flaws in Donald Trump's plan to pull out of the Paris accord. For all the links, head to http://edmontonjournal.com/tag/the-press-gallery.
