OTTAWA — It's been déjà vu for the Conservative campaign as Andrew Scheer resurrected the promises of campaigns past in his pledges of tax credits for transit users and families with kids enrolled in arts and fitness programs.

Stephen Harper — Scheer's predecessor — had promised the very same tax breaks during his own campaigns, pledges that became reality when the Conservatives formed government but were subsequently axed by the Liberals.

Now the measures are back in the election window, a useful political tactic for the Conservatives keen to show they are on the side of families and remind voters that it was the Liberals who killed the credits.
