Irene Mathyssen London—Fanshawe, ON
moved for leave to introduce Bill C-282, An Act to amend the Excise Tax Act (feminine hygiene products).
Mr. Speaker, this is an important bill in regard to the sale of feminine hygiene products and the extension of the GST because these products are a necessity. If we look at the experience of most women in Canada, it is a 40-year experience. These products are certainly not a luxury and that their use deems an exception from the GST.
