It's only the first week back for the fall sitting of the Alberta legislature, and we've already seen the government get into trouble in the legislature over its carbon tax ads, and an all-party committee dissolved because members couldn't play nicely with one another. That, Alberta politics, is why you can't have nice things. Join legislative reporter and host Emma Graney as she chats with Edmonton Journal columnists Graham Thomson and Paula Simons, and legislative reporter Stuart Thomson, about highlights from the politics scene this week. The team also dives into the Progressive Conservative leadership race and the government's movement on its climate leadership plan. Good Stuff From The Gallery Stuart's pick: Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, by Yuval Noah Harari. A book to all make us feel better about our time here on earth. Paula's pick: An Op-Ed that ran in the Journal. Penned by artist Gordon Harper, it spoke of the need for a new vision to save old Royal Alberta Museum. Emma's pick: The photos of this kid dressed as the pope at the White House Halloween bash. Graham's pick: The Economist's endorsement of Hilary Clinton.
