Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THS IETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, April 7, 1973 May be drop by July High prices for homes to continue By RICHARD ANCO Canadian Press Staff Writer Some major realtors expect Canadian house prices to level off eventually, but for the moment all signs point to continuing phenomenal in- creases. A rich blend of inflation psychology, a real housing shortage, optimism in the economy, growing demand by young people for houses and pure speculative buying is driving prices higher and higher. Brian Jackson, executive vice-president of the Canadian Real Estate Association, says that by July there may be a slowdown as houses begin to price themselves out of the market. Aside from plain common sense, he has little evidence to back up his prediction. Houses, no matter what the asking price in most cases, are selling fast. A Cross-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press shows Toronto still leads the wav in prices, but "hot markets" have developed in Vancouver, Hamilton, Ottawa and Hali- fax. The big spread that ex- isted between those centres and the "wild" Toronto area is being narrowed. Accurate statistics for com- parison are difficult to come by. As a general guideline to residential real estate values across Canada, the associ- ation has compiled average figures for sales made through multiple listing serv- ices of its member real estate boards in various localities. MANY UNDER MLS Multiple listing, or MLS, ac- counts for roughly 35 or 40 per cent of total sales, but varies from city to city de- pending on housing supply and demand. Totals include a high percentage of resales and in a few cases a high- priced apartment building have been sold on MLS. The real estate association's average MLS sale in Canada has increased annually from in 1968 to last year.

Tax column Tax law flexibility necessary By I. H. ASPER One of the toughest jobs fac- ing any justice minister is that of choosing the best men to fill the judicial roles in the nation's courts, and having found them, jeing able to persuade them to become judges. After accomplishing that, the minister and the community served by the courts must hope hat the judges who interpret the law will grow as the com- munity grows, and that the in- erpretation they give to the aw always stays consistent with the changing attitudes and values of society in general. This chang- ing of judicial rulings to match society's most clearly seen in the criminal law where what would clearly have >rought a conviction for obscen- .ty 10 years ago is no longer even brought to the courts te- :ause society's attitudes have releaxed. Just as it is important so- cially that the courts float with the times in criminal law, it is equally important that the tax court judges keep abreast of changing business techniques so thai their interpretation of the tax law will not impair or place barriers in the path of healthy economic activity. In this respect, for the most part, judicial interpretations of the tax law, as applied to busi- ness transactions, have in the past two or three years become much more positive. Although there are still too few tax judges who have a pre-bench in- timacy with the techniques of doing business, there appears in recent years a trend toward a more open and less literal ap- proach to the tax laws as it ap- plies to business transactions. A recent ruling by the trial division of the Federal Court il- lustrates the point. The case in- volved a Toronto housing devel- oper who made a financing ar- rangement -which some might consider unique, but not if they understand the trends in that industry. US HAND1JY IK.
