OTTAWA—Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre dared NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh Tuesday to bring down the government over a lack of a public inquiry into foreign interference, an issue that Poilievre’s predecessor brought into sharper focus by disclosing new details about how he and the party were targeted by Beijing.

Former Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole’s decision to reveal elements of what he was told by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) last week came as MPs were debating an NDP motion calling on the special rapporteur for foreign interference, David Johnston, to step down from the job and for the government to do what he didn’t — call a public inquiry.
