Democratic Reform Minister Pierre Poilievre hits the podium at the Chateau Laurier in Ottawa Thursday to "discuss the facts" surrounding his controversial proposal to rewrite Canada's election laws, at a lunch hosted by the Economic Club of Canada.

Poilievre may take the opportunity to give a heads up on which, if any, of the amendments recommended by an all-party Senate committee he intends to adopt before putting the bill to a final House vote, which is currently expected to happen when MPs return to Ottawa next week. 

CBCnews.ca will have livestreaming coverage and a live blog from the floor at 12:30 p.m. ET, so stay tuned!
