Christy Clark, MLA for Port Moody-Westwood announced on February 2nd that she will be putting forward a private members motion that would give tax credits to BC families for the cost of enrolling their children in sport, recreation and art programs. She sees this tax relief as just one of the things that governments can do to promote sport and physical activity and her announcement she hopes will start a public movement to support such tax incentives.
She has posted a petition on her website at www.christyclark.net calledSportBreakBC. This website also has more information on the announcement. Please circulate this news to your partners and stakeholders in sport and recreation.
Please take the 2 minutes to visit the website and, if you support this motion, sign the petition NOW as she will require this support to attempt to make this a reality.
