moved for leave to introduce Bill C-305, An Act to amend the Excise Tax Act (children's diapers).

Madam Speaker, I am very pleased to introduce this bill, which would amend the Excise Tax Act to exempt cloth and disposable diapers for children from the goods and services tax. In this day and age when the family is considered important, I am counting on all the support of all parliamentarians for this bill.
