Dear Mr. Rajotte:

Bill C-377 [An Act to amend the Income Tax Act (requirements for labour organizations)]

I am writing to you on behalf of the Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association (CLHIA) in order to draw to the attention of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance some effects of the captioned private member's bill that we believe are unintended and may not align with broader government policy. We have previously raised this issue with the Bill's sponsor; our letter to Mr. Hiebert is attached for your information. To date, alternative wording proposed by Mr. Hiebert's staff would not effectively address our concerns.
