moved for leave to introduce Bill C-232, an act to amend the Income Tax Act (herbal remedies).
Mr. Speaker, I introduced this bill in 1998 and am reintroducing it one more time. For the millions of Canadians out there who cannot take sulpha-based prescription drugs, if a licensed physician prescribes a herbal alternative, they should be able to claim that alternative as a medical tax deduction.
I seek a very quick adoption of this fine piece of legislation.
