Peter Stoffer Sackville—Eastern Shore, NS
moved for leave to introduce Bill C-216, An Act to amend the Income Tax Act (services to a charity or public authority).
Mr. Speaker, there are many organizations, like legions and others, that do a great job in this country and yet the membership dues to those particular agencies are not necessarily tax deductible.
We are looking for more people to join things like the army, navy, air force veterans halls, legions, et cetera, but we think the membership dues they pay to join should be completely tax deductible.
