The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


Oct 20, 2017

It's all about crossing boundaries in this week's Alberta politics Press Gallery podcast.  Join host Emma Graney with guests Sarah O'Donnell, Paula Simons and Graham Thomson as they take a look at the sexiest report to hit politics this week — The electoral boundaries commission final report, and what it means for Alberta.  Speaking of crossing boundaries, the former PC MLA who crossed over to the NDP was this week promoted to Infrastructure Minister, and the team delves into the crossover between the outcome of this week's municipal elections and what it could mean for provincial politics.  You can now subscribe to The Press Gallery on iTunes, Tune-In Radio, Soundcloud, Stitcher and GooglePlay.  Good stuff from the gallery Sarah's pick: The Investiagtive Reporters and Editors podcast. Specifically, check out the episode The Adjustment Factor, about how a dig through county property taxes ended with a three-part series delving into how and why Chicago’s broken property tax system benefited the wealthy and burdened the poor. Paula's pick: Ahead of St. Albert's StarFest, Paula recommends you read The Whisky King by Canadian author Trevor Cole. It's the remarkable true story of Canada's most infamous bootlegger and the undercover Mountie on his trail.  Emma's pick: This read in BBC News Magazine about robots, and whether humans can ever teach them ethics.  Graham's pick: The film Only The Brave. It's based on the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, a group of elite firefighters risk everything to protect a town from a historic wildfire. ** You can find all the links at http://edmontonjournal.com/tag/the-press-gallery
