According to the Government of Canada all menstrual hygiene products are considered a non-essential item or luxury; therefore, we pay taxes on these items. To add insult to injury, things like pizza pockets and cocktail cherries are not subject to GST. Together, we can call to get rid of this tax, since these menstrual products ARE essential. Sign the petition and share it with your friends and let our elected officials know that you won’t stand for this unfair tax any longer. The petition and more info is HERE.
