As summer winds to a close, many of us begin to think of the new school year. This week kids will be back in the classroom. I would like to remind you of my Private Members' Bill, C-241. If passed, this bill can positively impact schools all over the country. Bill C-241 seeks to have the GST paid by school authorities refunded from the federal government at 100% instead of the current 68%. This means more funds for schools across the country; funds that can improve the education of children across Canada. In Saskatchewan alone this amounts to $8,480,043.76 more for our Saskatchewan classrooms!
To bring this bill to the attention of the government, please sign the petition, regarding this important issue, below:
