Message to Commons--Notice of Motion Requesting Passage of Bill

May 2, 2019


[13:50]

Honourable senators, I give notice that, at the next sitting of the Senate, I will move:

That, in the opinion of the Senate, Bill S-243, An Act to amend the Canada Revenue Agency Act (reporting on unpaid income tax), is a critical piece of legislation to fight overseas tax evasion and was duly passed by the Senate and has been in possession of Members of the House of Commons for many months, and the bill should be passed into law at the earliest opportunity; and

That a message be sent to the House of Commons to acquaint that house accordingly.

Colleagues, you will recall that two weeks ago the House of Commons sent us a message suggesting we take action on legislation. In that spirit of cooperation, I give this notice.
