Pro- perties in Capital in UIR course of which he said "1 am not' aware what action the executive here have taken nor am 1 restricting my remarks to the capital cities, but rather to those cities ami towns all over Canada where extraordinary burdens are -placed on the shoulders of the ratepayers. some cases the exemption con- sists mostly of property used lor' charitable and religious or education- al purposes. To a very largp. ex- tent the community exempting land j for such purposes receives local com- pensating advantages. "There is, however, another class of exemption to which reference must he made. The'properly of the govern- ment, both Dominion and Provincial. "Nor do I make my complaint in. respect of post office and custom house property, fhey are as neces- sary, as town halls and fire engine houses to a community. AVhcn a government puts up a post office or a custom house the burden oE exemp- tion from ta.Ya.tion is cast upon the town. The community must, furnish fire protection, -often expensive equip- ment, sometimes n permanent force ot water service, adequate lor fire protection, as well as for domestic service, jiolicc protection, street cleaning, street watering, and street, lighting, sewer maintenance, but while in this case the exemption of the property is not a voluntary one, it is a case where all municipalities are on the same footing." Taking the'cities b[ 'Ottawa and Halifax as oxanrplcs of localities wherein public -and other government- al buildings are located, Alderman Harris emphasized the fact that while property pays no.taxes whatever to the re- ceives the fullest measure'of both fito and police protection, .the strecti are kept clean and watered, and at night arc lighted, but for none of these ser- vices1 is a single' dollar -paid by the government.
