Our next Off the Hill is right around the corner: On Tuesday, June 7 at 7:30pm ET join us for Off the Hill: Hot summer in the West. 

The Alberta political scene is in upheaval with the departure of the current (disgraced) premier and the federal conservative leadership race is becoming increasingly vitriolic. Amid this time of turbulence, what can we expect to see unfold in Alberta and in Ottawa? And what will the impact be on the political scene overall?

Join guests Rachel Snow, David Climenhaga, Chuka Ejeckam, Karl Nerenberg and co-hosts Robin Browne and Libby Davies as they connect these burning issues and knit together the connections, disconnections, challenges, and possible scenarios of unfolding current events.
