TThe federal Conservative platform for the 2019 election will not include a tax deduction for parents who send their kids to private and independent schools, iPolitics has learned.

A spokesperson for Andrew Scheer confirmed in an email statement blamed the Tory leader's decision to not move ahead with the tax credit on the large annual budget deficits recorded by the Trudeau government in recent years. Marco Vigliotti reports.

Staying in Tory circles, Ontario Premier Doug Ford said last week he's "not interested" in the upcoming federal election, and doesn't care about who wins — comments made one week after Scheer appeared to dodge questions about Ford at an event in Toronto.
