Today on the Alberta Roundup with Rachel Emmanuel, Rachel explains how the Liberal government’s “anti-greenwashing” legislation is bad news for Canadian businesses, particularly Alberta’s oil and gas sector. As a last minute amendment to the government’s fall economic statement bill, C-59, the government will now require businesses to back up their environmental claims or otherwise be accused of “greenwashing.”

Also on the show. Rachel has an update about a new cellphone policy in Alberta schools.

Later, Rachel has an update about the Alberta NDP leadership race and she explains why she doesn’t like the Alberta is Calling campaign.
