Between Christmas and New Year's, we're reviving a tradition we began last year: Bringing you in-depth conversations with some The Rebel's most popular, fascinating and knowledgeable guests.
Tonight: Senior Columnist with the Edmonton Sun Lorne Gunter joins me for a long-form interview.
I've known Lorne for over 20 years, going back to our days working for Alberta Report magazine, where many careers in Canadian conservative commentary were launched.
(In fact, Lorne's family welcomed me into their home back when I was in law school, and he shares a reminiscence about that!)
One idea behind the Alberta Report is one we've carried on here at The Rebel:
That what happens in that province impacts all of Canada.
Lorne explains how Alberta has changed over the years. He debunks some myths about the province's politics and culture, reviews Premier Notley's time in office, muses on Jason Kenney's chances for success, disses the "smug, pretentious" Alberta Party — and talks about so much more.
Even if you're not an Albertan, I think you'll find Lorne's comments thought provoking!
