QP Live: Everyone’s already tired of the Arrested Development references

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. Once a week, we’ll feature a guest blogger to sort through the madness. 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.

NDP Leader Tom Mulcair, fresh off the best pop culture reference of his political career, will again go after the government’s unaccounting for $3.1 billion in anti-terror funding.
