The days after the Wildrose and Progressive Conservative parties voted to merge last weekend have been filled with policies, a leadership bid, and "no" voters threatening to shard off and create their own parties. Naturally, the Press Gallery team will tell you all about it in this week's podcast. Join host Emma Graney with guests Sarah O'Donnell, Paula Simons and Graham Thomson to talk the vote, and what happens now in Alberta politics. Good stuff from the gallery Sarah's pick: These Toronto Star stories about a bizarre CSI-style enemy wall in the office washroom of the Stouffville mayor — which included the photo of a Star reporter. Paula's pick: This Maclean's Magazine piece about an Alberta MP who changed his mind on homosexuality when his grandson came out. Emma's pick: A couple of pieces about rural America, including this read about the death of a small grocery in rural Colorado, and this piece from the Washington Post about the divide between those in rural America who get disability cheques, and those who work. Graham's pick: The film Dunkirk. ** head to http://edmontonjournal.com/tag/the-press-gallery for all of the links.
