Today on the Alberta Roundup with Rachel Emmanuel, Rachel interviews True North host Andrew Lawton, who’s live at the Canada Strong and Free Networking Conference. Lawton gives a look ahead to his fireside chat with Alberta Premier Danielle Smith on Friday, where he’ll be asking the premier about parental rights and the carbon tax.

Rachel also wonders whether Conservatives think there will be a federal election this fall, and whether the Axe the Tax protests ongoing in Alberta for over a week now, are making an impact across the country.
