The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


Feb 5, 2016

Alberta's tiny cabinet grew this week after Premier Rachel Notley appointed six new ministers - and a deputy premier - to her team as the NDP government attempts to tackle a growing mountain of work ahead of this spring's legislative session and budget. All eyes were on the legislature as Justin Trudeau arrived for a meeting with Notley this week to quell growing discontent in the province as the economy tanks. But was it enough? And the NDP government is beginning to see some opposition from some unexpected voices. Press Gallery regulars Graham Thomson, Keith Gerein and Sheila Pratt join host Mariam Ibrahim in the newsroom studio to dissect all this and more. As always, the show ends with the panel's picks for Good Stuff from the Gallery.
