The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics

Mar 2, 2019

Alberta's third-quarter fiscal update this week wasn't as horrible as we imagined, but that didn't exactly make it good news.

Join Press Gallery host Emma Graney with guests Clare Clancy, Keith Gerein and Sarah O'Donnell as they dive into those numbers.

The team also takes a look at new UCP election promises around immigration, and fines related to an investigation into the Jeff Callaway alleged kamikaze UCP leadership campaign. Speaking of investigations, the NDP also landed in hot water, thanks to a political event at a hospital in Lethbridge. Tsk tsk.

Good Stuff from the Gallery

Clare's pick: A podcast from The Australian, called Who the hell is Hamish?, about the ultimate Aussie fraudster.

Sarah's pick: Another podcast recommendation. This one is from NPR's WBEZ in Chicago, called Public Official A.

Emma's pick: This fascinating read in the New Yorker about an English psychiatrist who believed people could tell the future, and what happened to him.

Keith's pick: Keith wants you to check out CIVIX and their work around bringing democracy to youth. And for something to read, this piece in the Globe and Mail about the free press in Hong Kong and how China is getting involved.
