The spring session of the Alberta legislature wrapped Thursday, so the Press Gallery team couldn't resist taking a look back at the bills, the highlights, the lowlights and what it all means for provincial politics. Join host Emma Graney with guests Clare Clancy, Paula Simons and Graham Thomson to reflect on 2018 spring session memories. The team also talks about Pride Week, related political developments and a touching speech by Alberta Party MLA Rick Fraser.
