QP Live: more on tariffs and health cuts

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.


Heritage Minister James Moore will defend the government, as he has all week, against opposition charges that the government’s raised tariffs on a number of consumer goods. In the absence of Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird, one of his parliamentary secretaries will shoulder questions about Bruno Saccomani’s appointment as Ambassador to Jordan.
