moved for leave to introduce Bill C-395, An Act to amend the Income Tax Act (transportation benefits).
Mr. Speaker, this bill would amend the Income Tax Act with respect to transportation benefits. The bill would serve to promote sustainable transit choices and not impose the burden of taxation upon employers or employees who receive these benefits.
I believe the bill would be of benefit to all Canadians.
