The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics

Jun 10, 2017

Alberta politics nerds commiserate — the spring sitting of the legislature is, after three months, over. Join Press Gallery podcast host Emma Graney with guests Stuart Thomson, Dave Breakenridge and Paula Simons to discuss the session that was.  The team also takes a look at the Fort McMurray wildfire report, released in haste this week after it was leaked to media. Good stuff from the gallery Dave's pick: The fantastic American epic The Given Day, by Dennis Lehane.  Paula's pick: This speech by Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister, Chrystia Freeland, about Canada’s foreign policy priorities. Emma's pick: The BBC News explainers on the gobsmacking UK election, including this blow-by-blow account, this look at a Tory-DUP pact, and this excellent Election In a Nutshell.  Stuart's pick:  This read in the New York Magazine by Heather Hurlburt, called The World Without America. *Find all the story links at
