QP Live: Government surveillance and more on expenses

Join us for your daily dose of political theatre. Tweet about the madness at #QP


Maclean’s is your home for the daily political theatre that is Question Period, when opposition and government MPs trade barbs and take names for 45 minutes every day. Today, QP runs from 2:15 p.m. until just past 3 p.m. We tell you who to watch, we stream it live, and we liveblog all the action. The whole thing only matters if you participate. Read our morning tease to catch up on the issues of the day, and then chime in on Twitter with #QP.


Defence Minister Peter MacKay faced questions related to both a Canadian surveillance program operated by the Communications Security Establishment Canada and the PRISM program operated by the U.S.-based National Security Agency. MacKay denied that any Canadians were surveilled by their own government, but the opposition remained unsatisfied with the defence minister. Expect more questions today.
