The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


Oct 23, 2015

The red tide has risen. Monday’s federal election saw Liberal leader Justin Trudeau topple Stephen Harper’s Conservative regime. The knives are out, the campaigns are being dissected and armchair prime ministers are picking fantasy cabinets. We talk about Premier Rachel Notley’s cabinet adjustment and the appointment of a new Alberta Health Services board. This week on The Press Gallery, Edmonton Journal’s politics podcast, city columnist Paula Simons, provincial affairs reporter Mariam Ibrahim and blogger and web editor Stuart Thomson join host Brent Wittmeier to analyze a big week in politics. Good Stuff from the Gallery, a weekly segment, concludes the show.
