The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


Apr 11, 2014

While the Progressive Conservative party works to recover from its leadership upheaval, what have Alberta’s three opposition parties been doing to capitalize on this political opportunity? This week, columnist Paula Simons, political columnist Graham Thomson and provincial affairs reporter Karen Kleiss talk with host Sarah O’Donnell in The Press Gallery about how the Wildrose, Liberal and NDP parties have performed. The politics podcast also talks about Premier Dave Hancock’s first week with the Legislature back in session.
