the government has removed tax relief measures to Canadian troops deployed in the fight against ISIS on Operation Impact while they were deployed abroad;
This cut to danger pay affects families and loved ones of the Canadian Armed Forces that were counting on this tax relief; and
The Minister recognized that "All Canadian Armed Forces personnel serving at all Operation IMPACT Kuwait locations received Tax Relief effective 5 Oct 2014" in documents that he signed and tabled in the House of Commons on January 30, 2017.
We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to immediately reinstate and retroactively pay back the tax relief measures for all troops deployed on Operation IMPACT.
