#SamaraChat XIV: Is Anyone Listening? The Culture of Debate in the HoC

Log onto Twitter for #SamaraChat XIV: Is Anyone Listening? The Culture of Debate in the House of Commons on Wednesday, February 21st at 12:00 PM EST. RSVP to receive an advance look at the questions and an email reminder. 

For our full “No One is Listening” research report, visit: http://www.samaracanada.com/heckling


In spring 2017, Samara surveyed Members of the 42nd Parliament to explore the state of heckling and decorum from the perspective of those in the House of Commons. The survey revealed that incivility remains a problem. MPs don’t like the state of debate in Parliament, but they don't want to get rid of heckling entirely either. This paradox suggests that heckling is deeply embedded in the culture of Parliament. Join us to talk about the findings in this report and your thoughts on if and how the culture of debate in Parliament should change in the next 150 years.
