Initiated by ROberta MArtin from Pontiac, Quebec

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the House of Commons

  • School authorities are funded through taxpayer dollars;
  • The Government of Canada collects GST on goods and services purchased by school authorities, then refunds 68 percent; and
  • The remaining 32 percent is a tax on tax.
We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to support Bill C-241 which seeks to have the full 100 percent of GST collected by the Canada Revenue Agency refunded to Canadian school authorities.
