This week on the Alberta Roundup with Rachel Emmanuel, Rachel unpacks Alberta Premier Danielle Smith’s latest effort to push back the federal government which is encroaching on provincial jurisdiction by making deals directly with municipalities.

Also on the show, the premier addresses her decision to keep the provincial fuel tax despite pressure to axe it as Ottawa continues to raise its federal carbon tax.

Finally, Rachel has an exclusive story about an Alberta NDP MLA who apologized in the House this week after scarring a female UCP MLA. That MLA is now asking him to seek anger management.
