Does this really surprise anyone?

Tax relief introduced by the NDP is generally a joke. And this is no different.

If they really wanted to be proactive, start with the older age groups first and work back. Why? Because it would be more beneficial from a health perspective to get a sedentary 50+ yr old adult active then to get a 7 yr old who already takes gym in school.

Another thing I don't like is their tuition rebate. It's limited to institutions that would qualify under federal tuition tax credits.

The problem?

Full time students can qualify for this if they attend Canadian or Foreign institutions.

Distance or P/t time students can qualify only if they attend Canadian institutions.

WTF difference does it make if the internet based course I am taking originates from a computer in Alberta or in England?

Also its not retroactive to people who decided to stay here a few years back and are still paying off student loans.

I totally agree is age based fitness credit it should have started at the older groups and worked backwards. TONS of 18-24 year olds are still active so its not like you are encouraging them to do anything.

Hell for the fitness credit the NDP should just buy every family a wii and make sure to push the woman in the house off of it in the proper manner.

1 hour at a time???

How about 30 times a week for at least 2 minutes at a time? (I could get carpal tunnel syndrome from that...)
