This week on The Alberta Roundup, Rachel discusses how unsealed court records revealed that Rachel Notley’s NDP knew one of its MLAs hacked Alberta’s vaccine portal causing the system to buckle — and then blamed the UCP government for the system’s failure. Chief Government Whip Brad Rutherford told True North called the NDP’s action “the most shameless stunt we’ve seen from the Notley NDP so far.”

Plus, a Coutts border protester who made headlines last month when he was implicated in his friend’s conditional release has been charged by the Alberta RCMP.

And the latest in the UCP leadership race – including a bizarre email from the Rebecca Schulz campaign pretending to be an NDP supporter begging Conservatives not to vote for Schulz because the NDP are afraid of her.

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.
