Today on the Alberta Roundup with Rachel Emmanuel, Rachel interviews Alberta Premier Danielle Smith on when the provincial fuel tax will be lowered and whether the province is recommending Covid-19 vaccines for babies beginning at six months.

Rachel also asks the Premier about protecting women in jails and shelters after Smith said at the CSFN conference last week that biological men will still be allowed in these spaces.

Finally, Rachel asks the Premier for her response to the guilty verdicts for the Coutts three and for an update on a promise to ban electronic tabulators in the province.
