The plummeting price of oil is dominating all political debate in Alberta this week. The Press Gallery, Edmonton Journal’s weekly politics podcast, followed suit. Business columnist Gary Lamphier, city columnist Paula Simons and join host Sarah O’Donnell to talk about why oil prices are falling and what the impact may be here in Alberta on taxes, spending and the civil service. The panel also talks about the changes already shaking Alberta’s economy.
