Michael and Elliott begin with the 780 and Conde Nast Traveler's rating of Edmonton as the 8th best city in the world to eat pizza! Why did Edmonton beat Italian cities like Milan and why was it the only Canadian city on the list?
Provincial budget 2016, its features ,carbon tax, and Elliott's further praise of Notley affirming her government's pledges. Later an analysis of the federal NDP convention last week.
