Tax Fairness for Women http://irenemathyssen.ndp.ca/tax-fairness-for-women Bill C-282 calls for the government to exempt feminine hygiene products from the GST/HST. Feminine hygiene products are not optional purchases for women in Canada and should be exempt from taxation.
Products and services that the Government has deemed a basic necessity are exempt from the GST/HST. Some products that are listed as basic necessities and are not taxed include edible cake decorations, cocktail cherries, and wedding cakes.
