QP Live: See you in the fall, prime minister

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 11 a.m. until just past 12 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.


Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who never attends Question Period on Fridays, won’t show up today. In fact, he won’t be back in the House until the other side of the summer break. That means a designation spokesman—Heritage Minister James Moore has played that role consistently in past weeks—will field questions from the opposition on the Wright-Duffy affair.
