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 auditor general’s spring report will continue to feed many of the NDP’s questions to the government—primarily, the $3.1 billion in anti-terror funding the government can’t properly track down. The Liberals have mostly steered clear of the AG’s report this week, a trend that may continue.
