The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


Mar 29, 2018

The legislature is on a constituency break this week, but that hasn't stopped the political news out of Alberta. Join Press Gallery host Emma Graney with guests Clare Clancy, Paula Simons and Graham Thomson to talk about the latest recommendations from Alberta's child intervention panel, which were quietly slipped online by government this week.  The team also takes a look at United Conservative Party plans to target Edmonton in the 2019 election and Premier Rachel Notley's tour around Alberta to sell Budget 2018.  Good Stuff from the Gallery Clare's pick: This excellent podcast about life in a cult, called Dear Franklin Jones.  Paula's pick: This award-nominated piece by Cullen Bird about the lack of access to water around Fort McMurray.  Emma's pick: This week Emma goes for an oldie but a goodie with the BBC political comedy series The Thick of It. Fair warning — it's heavy on the swearing.   Graham's pick: Another movie from Graham this week — The Death of Stalin, based on real events in the dictator's life.
