May 9, 2015 — Yesterday was an incredible day. The NDP brought forward a motion calling to remove the tax on menstruation hygiene products in the House of Commons.

The Conservative party and Liberal party announced that they would be supporting the motion!

Half the day was spent debating the GST issue, but more importantly, talking about women and trans people and the broader injustices they face.

We are overjoyed that all political parties will support Friday's opposition motion calling to remove the tax on menstruation products.

All who have supported this campaign helped make the voices of women and trans people heard in parliament, bringing our parties together to deliver justice and equity to Canadians who need it most.

Canadian Menstruators are looking forward knowing that our next budget will remove this unfair tax.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
