The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


Sep 5, 2014

With the voting underway in the Progressive Conservative leadership campaign, the four-month race dominates this week’s The Press Gallery. Podcast host Sarah O’Donnell walks through the highs and lows of the last week – and the entire campaign -- with Journal columnist Paula Simons, provincial affairs reporter Karen Kleiss and legislature columnist Graham Thomson. What kind of campaigns did Jim Prentice, Thomas Lukaszuk and Ric McIver run in their attempt to become Alberta’s next premier? And what does the Journal’s team of political reporters think the results may be on Saturday?
