QP Live: The day the government tables its budget bill

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.


The government’s set to table reforms to its temporary foreign workers program as part of its budget implementation bill, which itself will be tabled in the House later this afternoon. That will fuel the opposition for the rest of the week. Today, expect the opposition to cite the Parliamentary Budget Officer’s latest report that suggests the government’s economic plan will cost 67,000 jobs.
