Liberals Allege Andrew Scheer Will Still Pursue Private School Tax Credit If Tories Form Government Federal Liberals are accusing Andrew Scheer of planning to give a tax break to parents who send children to private schools, even though the Conservative leader has said the policy won’t be in his election platform. During the 2017 Conservative leadership race, Scheer proposed a tax deduction of up to $4,000 per child for parents who send their kids to independent schools, and a $1,000 credit for those who homeschool their children.

"As long as someone takes responsibility for what they said, and addresses the fact that in 2019 some things that may have been said in the past are inappropriate today, that if anything they’ve ever said in the past caused any type of hurt or disrespect to any one community or another and have apologized for that, I accept that," he said.

Stephen Harper Should Stay Silent If He Wants Andrew Scheer To Win

Stephen Harper Should Stay Silent If He Wants Andrew Scheer To Win Stephen Harper is back. Canada’s 22nd prime minister re-entered the political arena last week after appearing in a fundraising video on behalf of the Conservative Party. In the video, Harper declared that “Andrew Scheer stands for a better way forward. He and I both know that it’s time for you to get ahead. This is only possible with a government that lives within its means, with a government that protects the services Canadians rely on every step of the way. We don’t have that government in Canada right now.” The election is only a few weeks away now, and Canada is at a turning point.

"I accept the fact that people can make mistakes in the past and can own up to that and accept that."

Scheer made the remarks to reporters during an overnight flight to Vancouver on Sunday.

Since the writ was issued on Wednesday, Scheer has fired one candidate for expressing racist viewpoints via secret social media accounts, and has stood behind four others who have faced scrutiny for their actions.

Provincial election resignation

Ghada Melek was denied a chance to run for the Progressive Conservatives in the 2018 Ontario provincial election after sharing homophobic, transphobic and anti-Muslim posts on social media.

She is, however, currently the Conservative candidate for Mississauga—Streetsville.

When asked whether the party knew about Melek's provincial bid, Scheer said Melek had "accepted responsibility," addressed the comments and "expressed regret for some of the things that she shared."

Videos on Twitter

On Saturday, former Liberal cabinet ministers Maryam Monsef and Melanie Joly shared videos on Twitter of Conservative candidate for Kanata—Carleton Justina McCaffrey.

In the first video, from a year ago, McCaffrey tells a reporter she was bothered by Justin Trudeau's "preoccupation with the French, for example, the Quebec people." In the second video, McCaffrey appears to be pitching a reality TV show with far-right political activist Faith Goldy.

On Saturday McCaffrey posted a statement to Twitter, saying she "respects both official languages," and regrets her "poor choice of words."

In a statement issued by the Conservative party, McCaffrey said the video with Goldy was from 2013, and that she hasn't seen Goldy "in several years."

When asked on Sunday about Goldy, Scheer said she has said and done things he finds "intolerant" and said he has "made it clear" he won't have anything to do with her.

"What’s important for me today is that Ms. McCaffrey has addressed that and has taken responsibility for it."

Candidates under fire

On Thursday, Liberal cabinet minister Carolyn Bennet released a video of Conservative candidate for York Centre, Rachel Willson, wherein she discusses her desire to end abortion via “pro-life legislation.”

However, speaking at a campaign stop, Scheer said he has made it “very clear” that he would not support reopening the issue.

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer holds rally in Calgary Skyview

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer holds rally in Calgary Skyview Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer made a campaign stop in Calgary Monday evening, rallying supporters in the Calgary Skyview riding with a speech promising to repeal the carbon tax, champion Canada’s energy sector and cut taxes. “Job number one for a Conservative government will be called an Act to Repeal the Carbon Tax,” Scheer said to applause from the crowd. “We’re going to repeal Bill C-69. And we’re going to start the process to get an energy corridor in this country, so that western Canadian energy can flow to eastern Canadian markets so that once and for all we can get off foreign oil and become energy independent in this country.

In a statement sent to the Canadian Press by a Conservative party spokesman, Khanna apologized "unequivocally."

When asked by reporters on Sunday whether he was concerned about his party's vetting process, Scheer said he is "very confident" with the scrutiny his candidates were put through and that the unearthing of such material was an attempt by the Liberals to "distract Canadians from their own scandals."

The Conservatives, however, are not the only party whose candidates have come under scrutiny.

On Thursday, the Green party candidate for Simcoe-North, Erik Schomann, resigned after coming under fire for a 2007 Facebook post in which he appeared to suggest he wanted to mail pieces of a pig carcass to Muslims.

In a statement to Global News, the Green party said it has "zero tolerance for sexism, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, misogyny, homophobia or hate speech of any kind," and that the party had accepted Schomann's resignation.

"The party either knew or should have known what it contained. Why, then, if these words were so problematic, why was my candidacy ... accepted?" he said. "One is entitled to ask the question, was it incompetence or bad faith?

"I am not anti-Semitic. On the contrary, I campaigned and I will always campaign against all forms of racism, including Islamophobia and anti-Semitism."

On Wednesday, Olivier Mathieu, the NDP candidate for Lasalle-Emard-Verdun, resigned over allegations of domestic abuse. Mathieu denied the accusations but said he was withdrawing to avoid becoming a distraction.

More than an apology

Speaking at an event in Quebec on Sunday, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh said the decision to allow a candidate who has made a mistake to run for the party is about more than an apology.

"There has to be a commitment that they've changed, that they're willing to do things differently," he said.

"So if someone has had very hurtful beliefs or comments in the past, but has committed to apologizing and to changing and is committing that moving forward they're going to do things differently, then I think that we should be open to people who are willing to change.

"I believe that people can change and improve and I think that we should be open to that."

Global News reached out to the Liberal party and the Green party for comment but did not hear back by the time of publication.

Why Andrew Scheer's campaign platform sounds so ... familiar .
Andrew Scheer's pitch to Canadians in 2019 reads an awful lot like the proposals his old boss Stephen Harper used to great effect in past elections. But if the Conservative leader is campaigning to keep his party's base intact, will that be enough to put him over the top?It's a commitment that might stir some nostalgia. Stephen Harper's Conservatives identified reducing wait times as one of their top five priorities during the 2006 election. Once in government, the Conservatives committed $700 million in funding and signed agreements with the provinces.
