Breaking news: Your imported hockey helmet will cost less

The Finance Department admits an oversight

Yesterday, NDP MP Glenn Thibeault announced his discovery that hockey helmets were not covered by the hockey-related tariff relief the Harper government had touted.

This morning, the Finance Department says this was an “oversight.”

It has been brought to our attention that hockey helmets were not included on the list of products receiving tariff relief. This was an oversight at Finance and they will be eligible for tariff relief going forward.

Mr. Thibeault crows.
