Interim Liberal Leader Bob Rae responds to John Duncan's resignation as Aboriginal Affairs Minister. Is there a double standard within cabinet?

And the CBC's Kady O'Malley updates us on the status of a controversial private member's bill that would make it possible to strip dual nationals of their Canadian citizenship.
