Press Gallery podcast 256: The Alberta Politics Complaints edition

In the first episode of 2019, the Press Gallery podcast team takes a look at the ream of official complaints being filed inside the world of Alberta politics.

Over Christmas we had the UCP lodge an official complaint to the election commissioner about foreign funding to left-leaning third-party advertiser Progress Alberta, and Freedom Conservative leader Derek Fildebrandt doing the same about a donation in kind he made to Jason Kenney.

Then, to kick off the new year, Alberta Party MLA Karen McPherson complained about the Speaker’s response to her call for an investigation into how the NDP handled sexual misconduct complaints levelled against two of its MLAs.

Join host Emma Graney with guests Clare Clancy, Keith Gerein and Dave Breakenridge to talk about all of that, and make some prognostications about 2019.

Clare’s pick: Literary Fiction, an excellent monthly podcast about books.

Keith’s pick: University of Calgary economist Trevor Tombe’s opinion piece about why equalization is not, in fact, unfair to Alberta.
