QP Live: The PM celebrates free trade in Europe

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 11:15 a.m. until just past noon. We tell you who to watch, we stream it live, and we liveblog all the action. 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.


Just the same as yesterday, really. Prime Minister Stephen Harper would be under the gun in the House, but he’s in Brussels to sign a free-trade deal with the EU. In his stead, a senior cabinet minister will defend the government against opposition attacks on the Senate expense scandal, the information commissioner’s scathing report into access to information, and Wednesday’s Speech from the Throne.
