Foreign inference: Dueling statements from Singh and May raise new questions | CAPITAL DISPATCH

CTV News’ Rachel Aiello breaks down what you need to know from this week in Canadian politics.

First, Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre and his party opposed the Liberals’ plan to increase Canada’s capital gains inclusion rate, but it still passed with the backing of the NDP and Bloc Quebecois.

Rachel breaks down the months of political suspense, and why this will likely kick off a summer’s worth of attack lines for each side.

The Capital Dispatch Quote of the Week features Green Party Leader Elizabeth May and NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh – both of whom read the unclassified version of NSICOP report into foreign interference but had very different takeaways.

Next week is the final sitting for the House of Commons until mid-September. Rachel says she’s looking to see if any “shenanigans” will take place ahead of the summer break.
