What to know about ArriveCan debacle | Key weeks ahead for Liberal-NDP deal | CAPITAL DISPATCH

Capital Dispatch: Auditor General Karen Hogan’s report into the government’s troubled COVID-era ArriveCan app landed on Parliament Hill with a bang… but if you watched Capital Dispatch you already knew that was a possibility.

This week, CTV News’ Rachel Aiello looks into the fallout after the bombshell findings.

Also, the federal government has announced a ‘rebrand’ for the Climate Action Incentive Payment. It will now be known as the Canada Carbon Rebate, however the program will remain the same.

Then, Canada was reminded by NATO it is failing to meet its defence spending targets — Bill Blair says Canada is working on it, but didn’t give any timelines.

The Capital Dispatch Quote of the Week is Labour Minister Seamus O’Regan’s explanation of the ‘Canada Carbon Rebate,’ Rachel explains why.

Finally, what should you be keeping an eye on over the next few weeks? The future of the Liberal-NDP confidence-and-supply agreement. There’s a big challenge to solve in the weeks ahead. Will pharmacare be the end of the pact?
