moved for leave to introduce Bill C-246, An Act to amend the Income Tax Act (vitamins).
Mr. Speaker, this bill, an act to amend the Income Tax Act (vitamins), is important to all Canadians who use vitamins and other supplements to maintain their health. The purpose of this enactment is to expand the list of allowable medical expense deductions in the Income Tax Act to include expenses incurred for vitamin supplements, mineral supplements, dietary vitamin supplements or dietary mineral supplements.
I urge all members to support this bill. We all know that Canadians need to stay healthy and this bill encourages that through a tax break.
