Hating on oil? Premier Jason Kenney will not be putting up with that, thank you very much, announcing this week his government will conduct an inquiry into alleged foreign-funded attacks on Alberta's energy industry.
Join Press Gallery host Emma Graney with guests Keith Gerein, Clare Clancy and Dave Breakenridge to delve into why that inquiry is happening and what it means for Alberta.
The team also takes a look at Alberta's longest-ever sitting day via NDP concerns with education Bill 8 (or "Bill H8," as the opposition likes to call it), the kerfuffle over the true state of Alberta's finances and what's happening with Kenney's promised 10 per cent pay cut.
Keith's pick: Keith has two interesting reads for you this week. The first is from Macleans, about the recent Hong Kong protests. The other piece is a gobsmacking read from the Washington Post about Florida's iguana infestation.
Clare's pick: This super interesting read in the New Yorker about what medical science is doing to try and cure phantom itches.
Emma's pick: The fascinating Netflix documentary called Sour Grapes, about a high-priced wine scam.
Dave's pick: The excellent album Lux Prima.
