As the wildfire situation in Northern Alberta worsens, the United Conservative Party is fighting political fires of its own.

Join Press Gallery host Emma Graney with guests Janet French, Keith Gerein and Dave Breakenridge to take a dive into the appointment of a special prosecutor in the RCMP investigation into the UCP leadership race, and the new elections commissioner investigation facing UCP MLA Peter Singh.

The team also looks at the fires Health Minister Tyler Shandro tried to put out this week — and why the phrase "In due course" was trending on Twitter.

Good Stuff from the Gallery

Janet's pick: The wonderful children's book series about families (comes with bonus magic tricks!) called Magic misfits, by Neil Patrick Harris.

Keith's pick: This piece in the Globe and Mail by economist Trevor Tombe, about why Alberta's carbon tax is not, in fact, dead.

Emma's pick: Not at all political, this Netflix documentary about body building, called Generation Iron 3.

Dave's pick: This awesome new podcast called Defence Watch, which takes us behind the curtain of Canada’s special forces.
