The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


Sep 18, 2015

The Journal has rebranded in NDP orange. Well no, that's just the fall colours on our new stylized logo of the North Saskatchewan River valley. The second federal leaders debate was held in Calgary Thursday. Premier Rachel Notley found herself explaining about embarrassing cousins. This week on The Press Gallery, Edmonton Journal’s politics podcast, city columnist Paula Simons, reporter Sheila Pratt and National Post reporter Tristin Hopper join host Brent Wittmeier to talk about the federal debate and much more. Good Stuff from the Gallery, a weekly segment, concludes the show.
