Es-Councilln WHY THE PATRIOTIC FUND IS NOT RAISED BY TAXATION In view of the fact that a new cani- coudition that in years to come they must pay it back with. interest in some form of taxation. Under the Canadian system re- cruiting is voluntary, and it seems consistent that those who from in- ability or choice are not in uniform should show their good spirit by' a ;voluntary contribution to the Patri- otic Fund. To make the contribution compulsory by taxation would remove from it all the virtue of a voluntary donation, and it is believed in these days, when the men at the front and their relatives are, making such tre; mendous sacrifices there are few. if any, at home who do not wish -o 'tol- untarily make somfi contribution to: the general cause. In order, however.! that those who'attempt to evade their! responsibility asd neither fig .t paign to raise money for the Patriot- ic Fund wi the central Alberta has just given out ;oliow-j ing statement explaining why the Patriotic fund la raised by voluntary subscription instead of by taxation. Under the Canadian system of con stitutional government the right of at the front nor contribute to tho Pat- riotic Fund at home may be properly labelled, it is Urn intention this year to publish not only lists of donations but also lists of those who are known be started very shortly to UB in a pOHUion to committee for Cause.antl who refuse to do so. It may be added that the whole question of taxation vs. voluntary con- tribution has had the most serious consideration by those who have thnj of the fund at heart, mid the! system seems the only pros-! direct taxation upon lands and similar resources rests in the hands of the provincial governments and the mun- icipalities. The province of would the' right to raise. for patriotic purposes by imposing a property and poll tax, but no legisla- tion to that end has '.been passed and could not now .he enacted anil be made effective in time'to provide the fund needed this year to the soldiers' it must also be remembered that. under existing conditions the collection of- taxes either by the provincial' government or the municipalities stow that the dependents of would starve before the iponey from' that sourcfe would be" available, and "ith'e cost: of collecting -.would be at least ten times'what.'It costs Jo coHoct thfi': Thfi Dominfoiv tfoveirtiment courst, provide a patriotic Whti tiy irchlteol of'fforonto. illwl.
