McDonald of Alberta Supreme Court has ruled that courts of revision in the province do not have the statutory power to consider and decide upon complaints concerning the allocation of a corporation's assessment between public and separate school districts. Mr. Justice McDonald, in a judgment handed down Thur- sday, said the courts of revi- sion may consider and decide whether natural persons have been wrongly assessed as sup- porters of one school system or the other but not whether there has been a correct allocation of the assessment of a corporation between the two systems. He said that in his opinion the provisions of the School Act. "which give flesh and blood to the words 'public school supporter' and 'separate school supporter' as used in the Municipal Taxa- tion Act, make it clear that the word 'person' does not include a corporation." Mr. Justice McDonald said some might think the result of his ruling to be undesirable. "However, it is not for me to express a view as to whether or not the result is un- desirable. In my opinion, the legislature has simply failed to give this power to the court of revision. It may have had its own good reasons for fail- ing to do so. My task is to interpret the statute to read the words used by the legislature and give them effect. It is not for me to legislate where the legislature has not legislated, or to ex- press a view as to what would or would not be undesirable." ANOTHER FORUM Mr. Justice McDonald said that while the leg- islature has failed to provide that the court of revision shall hear com- plaints of this nature, this does not necessarily mean that there is not a forum in which to resolve such questions. He said the courts of law are available. The case before Mr Justice McDonald involved an application tor an order to prohibit the court of revision of the City of Edmonton from hearing or deciding certain complaints concerning assess- ment filed by Lloyd Neville Jones. The application was made by the board of trustees of Ed- monton Catholic School District No. 7 and named Mr. Jones, the City of Edmonton and the court of revision of the City of Edmonton as respondents. Mr. Jones, whose name appears on the assessment roll of the city, had filed 786 complaints about the appointment of corporate assessment between the public school district and the separate (Catholic) school district. Mr. Justice McDonald said his order applies only to two companies who were given notice of motion in the case. "However I would be surprised if the court of revi- sion proceeded to hear iden- tical or similar complaints." Terry Cockrall, a lawyer for the public school board, said he plans to appeal the decision to the appellate division of the Alberta Supreme Court The public school board is alleging that the 1974 cor- porate tax assessment of 786 corporations was wrongfully allocated under existing law.
