Canadian Conservative party leader Andrew Scheer announced on Aug. 20 in Toronto that if he were elected prime minister this fall, he would make EI maternity leave benefits tax-free in an effort to assist new parents, he said.

He also commented on the Jack "Jihadi Jack" Letts situation, who is the man recently stripped of his British citizenship and left only with his Canadian citizenship for ties to ISIS. Scheer said should remain in prison and is not welcomed to take refuge in Canada.
