QP Live: One week after the QP that stunned everyone

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.


One week ago, NDP Leader Tom Mulcair and Prime Minister Stephen Harper faced off in the House of Commons for a stunning series of questions and answers that breathed new life into Question Period. Mulcair’s still asking many of the same questions now as  he was a week ago, so expect another round—perhaps not as captivating—during this afternoon’s session.
