Conservatives drop private school tax deduction after realizing higher enrollment might lead to poors mixing with the quality - 2019-08-11
OTTAWA – As the federal election looms, Conservative leader Andrew Scheer has gone back on his promise to give a $4000 tax credit to offset the costs of private school tuition after wealthy parents objected on the grounds that it could result in middle and even lower class students being in the same school as their own, better class of child.
"The Conservative Party is still committed to gutting the public education system, but we acknowledge expanding private school attendance is not the best way to achieve this, at least not while keeping everyone in their proper place," Scheer said. "Rest assured, we'll find another way to ensure Canada has an old-fashioned, two tier primary education system."
"Perhaps some sort of phrenology based admission standard," he mused.
