Ask me anything about Parliament Hill

I’ll answer your questions about what’s happening on the Hill

Sean Kilpatrick/CP

Let’s not mince words. If you’re reading these words, you’re addicted to politics. You’re constantly learning more about whatever’s happening on Parliament Hill, and you’re always hungry to learn more. Every day, you have lingering questions about whatever is happening in Ottawa’s corridors of power.

Good. I’m glad. We’re going to have a lot of fun together. I have a plan to answer as many of those lingering questions as possible. Every Monday, I’ll open the floor to you. And every Wednesday and Friday that follow, I’ll answer one of your questions.

What kinds of questions should you ask?

All kinds. If there’s a bill before the House of Commons that’s escaped headlines, piques your interest, confuses you, or otherwise sounds generally interesting, ask me about it. I’ll break it down. If you have questions about private members’ bills or the MPs who introduce them, fire away. Really, the sky’s the limit. You ask, I answer.

What kinds of answers will I dig up?

If you ask about a parliamentarian, I might give you a Q&A with that person. If you ask about the technical side of a bill, I might turn around a point-by-point explainer. The goal: make some sense of the messy world of federal politics.

What’s next?

Start asking questions. Go ahead.
