In today’s Big Story podcast, Alberta’s disdain for Trudeaus runs pretty deep. In part two of our Lay of the Land series, we visit the Tory stronghold and examine the electoral landscape. The province wasn’t a total loss for Trudeau and his Liberals in 2015, but they could easily be completely shut out here this fall.

What’s at the root of Alberta’s anger at the federal government? How much of that is their fault? And if Andrew Scheer can’t knock off a few Liberals in the suburbs this time, what does that say about the national vote?

GUEST: Jason Markusoff, Alberta correspondent for Maclean’s
