Episode details

The first week of the Alberta election campaign is nearly over — and it’s been off to a slow start. So, who is coming out ahead in the early going and just how engaged are voters in this tight contest?

To break down Week 1, I’m joined by Elise von Scheel, the CBC’s provincial affairs reporter in Calgary, and Lisa Young, professor of political science at the University of Calgary and author of the What Now?!? newsletter.
