Maclean’s is your home for the daily political theatre that is Question Period, the opposition’s daily attempt to get answers from the government on the hottest issues of the day. We tell you who to watch, we stream it live, and we liveblog all the action.

On Nov. 6 at 2 p.m., J-Source associate editor Tamara Baluja joins Nick Taylor-Vaisey in the madness. They’ll take you behind the scenes on the House of Commons. Find out what will make headlines in real time, and what most reporters will completely ignore. You’ll learn that there’s a method to the political madness.


Yesterday, the Senate voted to suspend three of its members without pay. Don’t expect the opposition to let the Senate expenses scandal fade away. They might not have any new revelations—say, leaked documents or altered stories—to throw at the government, but plenty of questions remain unanswered.
