Episode #86: The Brief: What is on the Minds of Albertans for 2023?

2023 has just begun, but already there is much in flux within the province.

Rising inflation and concerns around affordability plague many, and questions around healthcare and a looming global recession weigh heavily on the minds of Albertans.

While Albertans are happy to leave the pandemic behind them, many Albertans are still looking to find their footing heading into 2023.

To help illuminate some of these issues and provide insight into the key priorities of Albertans to start the year, we invited renowned Alberta pollster, Janet Brown from Janet Brown Opinion Research, to the show.
