Deputy premier Sarah Hoffman has been an avid listener of the Press Gallery podcast, and so we hoped to have her on as our first ever guest for the new Press Gallery Interview format we launched last month. Scheduling difficulties couldn't make that happen, but she is the first woman to join us on the show. This week she stops by the Edmonton Journal studio to talk about her role as the "attack dog" for the NDP government, concern over rising wait times for some health services and controversy over Covenant Health's opposition to facilitating medical aid in dying. Hoffman also offers her thoughts on the continuing care sector, the upcoming election, and the United Conservative Party's issues with members who have extremist views.
