This week on the Alberta Roundup with Rachel Emmanuel, Rachel discusses Derek Reimer, pastor for Calgary’s Mission 7 Ministries, who was arrested and charged this week with mischief and causing a disturbance following a protest at a drag queen story hour event.

Rachel also delves into the details of Alberta NDP leader Rachel Notley’s TikTok account. Notley is still using TikTok, while federal counterparts have deleted it following a federal review which found it poses an “unacceptable” privacy and security risk.

Finally, Rachel goes over Budget 2023’s new spending. Do you know which policy proposal was left off the books?
