The fall legislative session is over, but the oil price crash and its impact on Canadian coffers is nowhere near done. Join Press Gallery host Emma Graney with guests Chris Varcoe, Dave Breakenridge and Keith Gerein to talk about Premier Rachel Notley's decision to curtail oil production, what that means for Alberta and reaction from the oil and gas sector. The team also takes a look at a couple of United Conservative nomination races in Calgary — Peter Singh, who is accused of buying votes with cash and chocolates, and MLA Prab Gill's attempt to clear his name over vote misappropriation allegations that led to his departure from the UCP — and a brief look back at what else happened during the fall session. Good Stuff from the Gallery Dave's pick: Dave is very excited about the Edmonton Public Library's speaker series, announced this week. In particular, a visit by John E. Douglas who wrote Mindhunter: Inside the FBI's elite serial crime unit. Emma's pick: This excellent read from ProPublica entitled I Don't Want to Shoot You, Brother. It's a shocking story of police and lethal force — but not the one you might expect. Keith's pick: This fascinating read about about a century-old family treasure and the hope it cracks a deadly flu’s secret.
