The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics

Feb 7, 2015

Premier Jim Prentice was in Washington, D.C., this week, talking up Alberta to an American audience. How’d he do? That’s just one of the topics provincial affairs columnist Graham Thomson, legislature reporter Mariam Ibrahim and city columnist Paula Simons talk about on this week’s edition of The Press Gallery, the Journal’s provincial politics podcast, with host Sarah O’Donnell. The quartet also discuss a multi-million dollar lawsuit filed against Alberta’s justice minister and four senior servants by the former chief medical examiner Anny Sauvageau, which makes serious allegations of political interference. And with the price of oil still hovering around $50 a barrel, the conversation returns to Alberta’s budget and the latest warnings from Alberta Finance minister Robin Campbell.
