On this week’s Alberta Roundup, Rachel Emmanuel breaks down the news and headlines that matter to Albertans. First, Alberta’s Chief Firearms Officer Dr. Teri Bryant takes aim at Trudeau’s latest measure to punish law-abiding gun owners – a ban on the importation of handguns without the oversight of parliament.

Next, Albertans may have noticed some relief at the pumps this month. Premier Jason Kenney called for an investigation into price fixing by gas companies last month as some Albertans were paying higher prices than those living in Ontario.

Also, a new controversy is brewing after it was revealed that a former chief of staff to Kenney is earning over $200,000 from a government contract while working in the private sector.

Plus, the latest in the UCP leadership race as Rajan Sawney’s campaign suffered a major blow this week.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
