Stephen Harper promises a fitness tax credit. So long as he’s Prime Minister in 2015.

Stephen Harper continued touting his low-tax campaign message Sunday by announcing that a re-elected Conservative government would create a $500 fitness tax credit for adults — but after the budget is balanced by 2015. He also promised to boost the children’s credit from $500 to $1,000, a change also to be enacted once the government gets back to balanced books.
