This week on the Alberta Roundup with Rachel Emmanuel, Rachel discusses Premier Danielle Smith’s move to shake up Alberta Health Services (AHS) by firing Deena Hinshaw and 11 members of the AHS board.

And, the premier has been banned from Russia even after critics called Smith a Putin propagandist.

Rachel also covers Alberta NDP leader Rachel Notley’s plans to address the health care crisis.

Finally, the Alberta Parents’ Union is reigniting warnings that a proposal to relocate a program for pregnant teens is unsafe after a boy was stabbed at a school pitched for the relocation.

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.
