On index, industrials were up 33 to 163.29, golds .24 to 164.65 and western oils 2.53 to 181.22. iaee metals dropped .16 to t6 21 Volume by 11 a.m. was shares, down from at the same time Thursday. Gains outnumbered losses 127 to 66 with 162 issues unchanged. Among advancing issues, Chrysler was up Hi to Aquitaine to Home A to Bell to tfassey-Ferguson to and Northern and Central Gas to Bank of Nova Scotia dropped to Pine Point 1 to Noranda to Kerr-Addi-son Vt to and Lake Du-fault to MONTREAL was slow today on the Montreal stock market following technical difficulties which interrupted the flow of regular mar-tet i h f o r m a t i o n to display wards snd tickers. Prices were generally higher extending Thursday's strong performance despite the lack of Tiinute-by-minute stock quota-ions and summaries. An exchange official said the difficulties originated in Trade ment on the floor of the Montreal and Canadian Stock Exchanges which provides input data to a central computer. He expected normal services would be restored before the. end of the day. Bell Canada gained to Aquitaine to Imperial Oil to International Utilities to and Alcan Vs io Royal Bank was off to Trizec Corp. and Cummings Properties saM agreement in principle has been reached to form a joint venture to purchase and operate the First National Building in Detroit. Purchase price was not disclosed. The 26-storey office building is one of the largest buildings in Detroit. A record of early transactions in the two issues was not immediately available. MODEST GAINS NEW YORK (AP) Stock market prices were vip modestly in moderate trade Friday. At noon the Dow Jones average of 30 industrial stocks was ahead 2.19 at 759.86. Advances led declines on the New York Stock Exchange by less than 2 io i. Analysts said profit-taking was evident but this was offset by some hope the prime rate of interest would be cut soon. At noon the Associated Press 60-stock average was up 1.1 points at 254.1. All categories were mixed except rubber issues, metals, and airlines, which were up, and electronics, unchanged. Canadian Pacific was up IVs to Other Canadian stocks showed only fractional changes, except Mcintyre Porcupine, off 3 at Dome Petroleum rose 5Vs to on the American Stock Exchange.

De-wnding on its mechanics, it can w one of the most significant ind welcome tax reforms ever ntroduced in Canada, equal in mpact to many of the major changes proposed in the tax reform white paper. The manner in which the plan was disclosed, through a press release, is surprising. Ordinarily, major changes in the tax system are announced in the Finance Minister's budget speech or contained in a Government white paper. However, the unusual method of the present, when one em-wrks on a commercial venture sr reorganizes his affairs thare is no way in which he can know with certainty how She tax law will treat him. He can consult his professional advisers but because the law is so complex, each case depends upon its own peculiar circumstances so that the advice he gets is usually vague and non-commit-al. The tax cost of guessing wrong can be overwhelming. Indeed, there are many cases where a taxpayer completes a transaction in the belief that it pruvikes no tax, only to find that the Government's view is the reverse and years of tax transaction at all had he mown to advance the Tax attitude. In recent years, the need for an advance ruling system has >een heightened. Because ot the uncertainties ot the tax implications of certain kinds of business transactions and the overwhelming and often crippling effect of making a tax judgment error, many normal business transactions have been stymied. The tax law provides he Revenue Department with many discretions as to whether or not to levy taxes in given cases. The Department has generally refused to disclose in advance how it will exercise that discretion. You do your deal and take your chances. MAY BE REMEDIED It now appears this highly unreasonable situation may be remedied. The Government pro-sose that taxpayers will be en-itled to apply for and obtain a ruling as to the tax consequences of a proposed before they embark upon it. The ruling will be given in writing and be binding upon the Government. That doesn't mean that if the ;ax officials give an interpretation of the tax law which the :axpayer believes is incorrect that the taxpayer is bound by it. All it does is tell him that if he goes ahead, he will have a legal dispute with the Revenue Department. In all likelihood, those cases will slill go to court but the taxpayer will at least be proceeding with his eyes open. Apparently the Revenue Department intends to charge the taxpayer a fee for the advance ruling service. The minimum fee is to be and presumably much higher in complicated cases. This is quite unnecessary and detracts from the quality of this major and enlightened reform. The Government makes the law and no citizen should ever be required to pay a fee to his Government for lie pleasure of being told how that law affects him. If the law is so vague or complex that its meaning and interpretation is ambiguous then clearly It should be the obligation of the state, and not at the cost of the individual to freely and openly advise the public as to its rights and obligations under the law. Indeed, the concept of charging a fee for access to justice is against all trends. This feature of the new system should be withdrawn. STILL UNANSWERED The proposal doesn't spell out the very important mechanics of the plan, and many important questions remain unanswered. Who will make the advance tax rulings, a group of revenue officers whose enthusiasm for collecting more revenue has been known to influence their interpretation of the law, or will Government show wisdom ana accounting auuwri-ies who give an objective inter-ffctation of the law regardless )f whether it results in more or ess revenue for the Crown? It is also to be hoped that the system will permit a tax-layer to appeal to the tax courts ;or a final interpretation of the law when he receives an advance ruling with which he disagrees. This is the practice followed in the United States where an advance tax ruling olan has been in force for a long time. Also, justice will be best served if all advance rulings across the country be made by the same board so that the rulings in Victoria don't differ from those in Halifax. A great deal of time will be saved and duplication avoided if the Government publishes all rulings it makes and discloses the facts of each case, giving anonymity to the taxpayer so that his affairs may remain private. This new law should provide that all advance rulings as published will be binding on the Government not only as regards the particular case on which it has ruled, but also on all other situations which are considered subsequently if the facts and circumstances are similar. That will avoid the necessity of the Government having to make rulings to every case. The Carter Royal Commission on taxation recommended an advance tax ruling system; the Canadian Bar Association and the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants have long urged its introduction. The Government has shown wisdom to adopting it. Ottawa will earn new respect from and lift the morale of taxpayers through this plan, but only if it is implemented with fairness and good judgment.
