The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


Jun 30, 2017

After a brief summer hiatus, the Press Gallery is back to talk about another couple of weeks in Alberta politics.  Join host Emma Graney with guests Dave Breakenridge, Sarah O'Donnell and Graham Thomson to talk Alberta's $10.8-billion deficit, and how a movement to unite the centre of Alberta's politics is coming along. After yet more developments in politics in B.C., the team also takes a brief look at what on earth is going on over there. Good stuff from the gallery Dave's pick: Janet French's feature series on school discipline in Edmonton. Also, Rolling Stone's look back at Radiohead's OK Computer album, which turned 20 recently. Emma's pick: This piece in The Walrus, about the monarchist and republican movements in Canada, and their surprising similarities. Grahams pick: Alberta finance documents, including the most recent annual report. Sarah's pick: This feature by Paula Simons and Clare Clancy, looking back at a change in Canadian immigration policy that opened the door for a wave of new immigrants starting in 1967. Also, the true crime podcast called In The Dark.   ** For all the links, head to http://edmontonjournal.com/tag/the-press-gallery
