The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


Jan 11, 2019

The Bighorn Country proposal rocketed into Alberta Politics news this week, starting with Environment Minister Shannon Phillips cancelled public consultations citing security concerns and ending with demands for her resignation.

Join Press Gallery host Emma Graney with guests Clare Clancy, Keith Gerein and Elise Stolte to talk about how and why the issue got out of hand.

The team also chats about the Case of the Missing Photo Radar Report, this week's death of highly respected former speaker Gene Zwozdesky and former Wildrose leader Brian Jean's big announcement.

Good Stuff from the Gallery

Clare's pick: The fantastic memoir Educated, by Tara Westover, about growing up in a fundamentalist Mormon family.

Elise's pick: Local book Little Yellow House, in which Carissa Halton explores how to create community in Alberta Avenue.

Emma's pick: Another book! Between Shades of Grey, a young adult novel by Ruta Sepetys. Set in a sometimes forgotten period of history, it tells the brutal story of a Lithuanian family deported to Siberia by Russia.

Keith's pick: Keith only read subtitles this week in his recommendation, the wonderful film Rosa.
