City columnist Paula Simons, provincial affairs columnist Graham Thomson and senior reporter Sheila Pratt join host Sarah O’Donnell this week on The Press Gallery podcast to sort through the changes. The weekly provincial politics podcast looks at the veteran Progressive Conservative MLAs leaving, Liberal leader Raj Sherman’s decision to resign and why Premier Jim Prentice doesn’t seem to feel bad about any of it. And that’s just the short list. Good Stuff from the Gallery Graham’s pick: Why do the best soldiers in the world keep losing?
