This week on the Alberta Roundup with Rachel Emmanuel, Rachel covers the Alberta government saying it has no plans to take in illegal border crosses entering at Roxham Road in Quebec. The crossers are currently straining resources in Quebec and Ontario and now some are being sent to the Maritimes.
Also on the show, a new Abacus Data poll shows that the Alberta NDP are tied with the UCP ahead of May’s general election.
Finally, Rachel discusses Alberta Justice Minister Tyler Shandro’s bid to get the federal government to commit to bail reform. Following a meeting with provincial and territorial ministers, Ottawa has agreed to amend the Criminal Code to make it harder for violent offenders to get bail — an amendment Alberta says must be made immediately
