Trudeau seeks to one-up Conservatives with plan on maternity, parental benefits

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau sought to one-up his Conservative rivals on Tuesday by promising new parents won't pay any taxes at all on maternity and parental leave benefits.

But their promise meant the initial tax would still come off benefit cheques, something Trudeau said won't happen if he's elected.

The pledge was part of a suite of new measures aimed at parents, which also include increasing the Canada Child Benefit for those with children under a year old and extending benefits under the employment-insurance program for parents who adopt.

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer argued Monday that the CCB, which sends parents monthly cheques if their income is below a certain threshold, is effectively a Conservative policy. Under the previous Conservative government, there had been a similar program that saw all families -- regardless of income -- also receive monthly payments.

Scheer also threw back to the previous Conservative government days Tuesday, offering a variation on a pledge the Tories made in the 2015 campaign to increase the amount of money the government gives towards registered education savings plans (RESPs).
