QP Live: The Wright-Duffy affair lingers

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 Wright-Duffy affair continues to dominate Question Period. Yesterday, Prime Minister Stephen Harper repeatedly claimed he’s been “very clear” that he had no idea that his former chief of staff, Nigel Wright, gave  a $90,000 cheque to Senator Mike Duffy to repay improperly claimed expenses. No surprise that the opposition won’t stop asking lingering questions about that cheque.
