The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


Jun 27, 2014

This week’s Press Gallery podcast is all about new twists on common themes. Another pipeline project is under review. Where the heck did this come from and is it a project that Alberta needs? An election on the horizon causes ripples in the Wildrose camp, with incumbent MLA Joe Anglin facing a challenger for his party’s nomination. And the Progressive Conservative leadership race jumps into the education debate as candidate Jim Prentice makes a big school construction promise. This week, provincial affairs columnist Graham Thomson, politics reporter Karen Kleiss and senior reporter Sheila Pratt join host Sarah O’Donnell to sift through the surprising amount of political news being generated in these long summer days.
