Episode details

With an election only a few months away, this week’s Alberta budget can’t be anything but an election budget. Will Premier Danielle Smith’s plan for the province help her win in May, or does it provide an opening for Rachel Notley and her New Democrats?

To break down what the budget means for Alberta and the election, I’m joined this week by Elise von Scheel, the CBC’s provincial affairs reporter in Calgary, and Trevor Tombe, professor of economics at the University of Calgary.
