QP Live: The day after the auditor general’s report

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.


Several cabinet ministers still reeling from yesterday’s auditor general report will be on their feet during Question Period. Treasury Board President Tony Clement will be made to answer for the $3.1 billion in planned anti-terror funding that has gone unaccounted for. Defence Minister Peter MacKay or Public Works Minister Rona Ambrose will speak to delays purchasing search-and-rescue aircraft.
