Alberta climate stories dominate the news in the lead-up to the provincial election. Controversy continues over the federal government's upcoming 'just transition' bill, the 15 Minute Cities planning tool, and a $20 billion bailout for oil companies to clean up abandoned wells. Climate scientists James Byrne and Hester Jiskoot join the Climate Lens to discuss the latest spin on climate denial in Alberta. Hosted by Steve Bentley and Deborah Wong.
