The founding United Conservative Party convention drew thousands of partisans to Red Deer last weekend and dominated talk in the Alberta legislature for the rest of the week. Join Press Gallery host and provincial affairs reporter Emma Graney with guests Clare Clancy, Paula Simons and Sarah O'Donnell to chat about the resolutions, the vibe and what it all means politically. The team also talks us through the most recent changes being proposed to Alberta's election finance laws. Good Stuff from the Gallery Paula's pick: Fresh off her own National Newspaper Awards win, Paula recommends some NNA-nominated work, including this excellent investigation by the Toronto Star about temp workers. You can find Melissa Martin's NNA-nominated work here, under the columns section. Clare's pick: This disturbing New Yorker read about Eric Schneiderman, the New York attorney general accused of sexual misconduct against multiple women. Emma's pick: All things Eurovision. Be sure to watch the final this weekend, if you can. As a quick refresher, here's last year's winner from Portugal. Sarah's pick: Two picks from Sarah this week — The Wall, an amazing, interactive look at the US-Mexico border, and this podcast episode about the Toronto Star's investigative work.
