Excerpt from Report of Ontario Commission on Railway Taxation 1905 In presenting a summary of the British system, we have availed our selves more especially of the exhaustive and voluminous reports of the Royal Commission on Local Taxation, recently completed. We have added also a survey of the taxation of railways in the various Provinces of the Dominion. We have been indebted, for valuable assistance, to such a large number of persons that it is impossible to acknowledge our obligations in detail. We must content ourselves with a slight reference to the very efficient and painstaking services of the Secretary of the Commission, Mr. W. B. Wilk inson, who, in addition to contributing valuable elements to our discussions, undertook the greater part of the work of preparing our itinerary, arranging interviews and procuring documents and materials. The question as to the most suitable method for the taxation of rail ways is simply a section, though in Canada to-day the most important sec tion, of the general problem as to the taxation of economic corporations. The problem of the taxation of corporations is a comparatively new one in Canada, but it is certain to continue to enlarge in importance and complex ity, until it far overshadows all other aspects of direct taxation.
