This week in Alberta politics saw an historic agreement between the government and Lubicon Lake First Nation, ending decades of legal wrangling and protests. Join Press Gallery host Emma Graney with guests Elise Stolte, Keith Gerein and Dave Breaknridge to talk about that deal and what it means for the community. The team also takes on PACs (political action committees or, in the dry tone of Elections Alberta, third-party advertisers), a wrap over the knuckles from the Ethics Commissioner and this weekend's NDP convention. Good Stuff from the Gallery Elise's pick: This interesting piece from Calgary about tiny homes for homeless veterans. Keith's pick: This excellent Bloomberg read about the head-scratching killing of two billionaires. Emma's pick: An awesome ABC News piece called Deadly Queens, about a talent show for Indigenous drag queens. Dave's picks: A heartbreaking read from the New York Times called The Case of Jane Doe Ponytail, about the death of a sex worker. Also, this hard-hitting podcast from the U.S. called Sold in America, about the sex trade.
