Move along folks, there's nothing to see this week in Alberta politics. Aside, of course, from the privacy commissioner's investigation into the justice department over a decidedly heel-dragging approach to processing freedom of information requests. Oh, and the official portrait of former Alberta premier Alison Redford, which was quietly hung in the legislative building early Thursday morning with no ceremony - just a stepladder and a level. Join host, legislative reporter Emma Graney, as she chats with guests Sarah O'Donnell, the Edmonton Journal's opinion page editor, city columnist Paula Simons and legislative columnist Graham Thomson about the Keep It Quiet part of Alberta politics, as well as the latest addition to the PC leadership race. Good Stuff From The Gallery Sarah's pick: The wacky and wonderful Atlas Obscura, the definitive guidebook and friendly tour-guide to the world's most wondrous places. Paula's pick: Framed, an excellent LA Times long read by Christopher Goffard about the friendly California PTA mom everyone knew, and who was framed for drugs. Emma's pick: An ABC feature by Melanie Garrick and Loretta Florance about the three people who refuse to leave Wittenoom, an erased Western Australia town declared too dangerous to live in. Graham's pick: Our Fragile Democracy by former Alberta speaker David Carter.
