The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


Apr 20, 2018

Another week in Alberta politics, and yet more developments in the Trans Mountain pipeline skirmish with British Columbia.  Join Press Gallery host Emma Graney with guests Clare Clancy, Paula Simons and Graham Thomson to talk about the new oil control legislation introduced in the house Monday, a meeting with the Prime Minister, and the latest comments from Kinder Morgan. OH! And a poll. About pipelines. Because it's all pipelines, all the time. The team also has a chat about a handful of Alberta MLAs who have decided not to run in 2019 — including one of the nicest guys in politics. You'll have to listen to find out who that is.  Good Stuff from the Gallery  Clare's picks: This read in The Guardian about the murder that shook Iceland. Also, the film A Quiet Place.  Paula's picks: The podcast Slow Burn, about Watergate. Paula also highly recommend's Graham's pick, The Death of Stalin.  Emma's pick: This super interesting read in The New Yorker about Chinese immigrants in Italy and their production of cheap fashion.  Graham's pick: This awesome new TV show called The Terror.
