QP Live: The end of a long week for the government

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 noon. 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 of the longest weeks in recent memory for the Conservatives draws to a close today. Expect a quieter, though no less acrimonious, affair today in the House when the opposition continues to question what the prime minister—who won’t be in the chamber—knew about the secret payment his former chief of staff, Nigel Wright, offered to Senator Mike Duffy.
