Alex Atamanenko NDP British Columbia Southern Interior, BC

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-452, An Act to amend the Excise Tax Act (goods and services tax on school authorities).

Mr. Speaker, I have the honour today of tabling this private member's bill to basically put school boards on par with municipalities. It is time. This has been discussed for a long period of time and I think we can get all party support to get this 100% exemption for school boards, many of which are struggling with cutbacks in provincial budgets.

It is time to get on with it. I look forward to support from everybody on this private member's bill.
