Many people suffer from disabilities such as cerebral palsy and can't get into or out of a vehicle without an assistive device.
GST tax rebate B-086 is meant to help people dealing with disabilities who need to modify vehicles in order to transport family members.
Many people are denied from receiving the tax rebate because B-086 only applies to vehicles modified for an “individual using a wheelchair”.
Many people would benefit if B-086 was amended to be inclusive for all disabled people who need to modify vehicles for accessibility reasons.
We, the undersigned, Citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to amend the wording of B-086 -- Rebate for specially-equipped vehicles for persons with disabilities to be inclusive to all who can't get into or out of a vehicle without an assistive device, that the person be using a wheelchair or not.
