This week on the Alberta Roundup with Rachel Emmanuel, Rachel has a big update about the recall Mayor Jyoti Gondek campaign, including that two campaign signs were defaced this week.

Also on the show, Alberta Premier Danielle Smith explains how the provincial fuel tax is different than the federal carbon tax as both will go up next month.

Meanwhile Calgarians are bracing for even higher than expected property tax increases this year, and Gondek is blaming the province — who shot back. Rachel also explains the latest efforts to conserve water ahead of an expected drought this spring.
