The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


Feb 28, 2014

The first Speech from the Throne in almost two years and a provincial budget will kick off the new session of the Alberta legislature, which begins Monday. Press Gallery regulars Paula Simons, Sheila Pratt and Karen Kleiss look ahead with podcast host Sarah O’Donnell about what Albertans might see from the Progressive Conservative government in the coming week, and offer up their suggestions on what they would put in the budget and throne speech. Good Stuff from the Gallery caps the show and includes another fine listener suggestion.
