John Finlayson Graham (b. May 31, 1924, Calgary, Alberta - d. November 14, 1990, Halifax).

No. 1 in the Atlantic Provinces Studies series.

Vaison p.108,117.

"This study is an attempt to find a solution to the problemof fiscal adjustment between a province or a state and its municipalities — a pressing problem throughout Canada and the United States and in many other countries in view of the great disparities in the revenue-raising capacity of municipalities, their limited tax bases, and the pressure on them to provide higher and higher levels of public services. The principles developed are of general applicability, but their use is illustrated by taking Nova Scotia as a case study.

It should be emphasized that the proposals made in this study, along with the argument developed in support of them, are not intended as mere "academic" exercises. They are made with the view to their becoming the basis for public policy in provincial - municipal fiscal relations.

Chapters on the economic history and geography of Nova Scotia and on why Nova Scotia is a low-income province and chapters on federal-provincial fiscal relations and on municipal organization and finance in Nova Scotia provide the framework for the integrated discussion of ecoionomic development and fiscal adjustment which follows. These two aspects of the study are brought together in two chapters dealing with the effects of public services on the allocation of resources and with the nature of fiscal adjustment conducive to optimum allocation. Here is the theoretical core of the study.

The study contains considerable discussion of the types of economic adjustment appropriate to Nova Scotia. The evidence suggests that there is a tendency for both labour and capital to have higher marginal productivities in other parts of the country and it is likely that there will therefore be continued migration of both from the Province. At the same time there is considerable room for raising average incomes by internal adjustment, especially by rationalization of primary operations in fishing, farming, and forestry, but also by some expansion of secondary manufacturing.

Present provincial - municipal fiscal relations in Nova Scotia are examined with reference to the principle of fiscal equity. A programme of fiscal adjustment is proposed which would implement the principle of fiscal equity for genepal servicesand for local services by
unconditional grants, these grants
being designed to permit all munioipalties of each type to provide "foundation" or "standard" levels of services with the same burdens of taxation on property. Other proposals
 would give some financial relief to all municipalities. The municipalities would be left with considerable flexibility in determining the actual levels of their services for they would be free to raise the level of any ser
vice they wished, by taxing them- selves more neavny, oy applying their unconditional grants for the purpose, or by doing both." - from the dj. [NOTE : the dustjacket is not present with this copy].

193 HARRISON, Phyllis, ed. Home Children : Their Personal Stories. Third Printing, Paperback.
Watson & Dwyer Publishing Ltd., Winnipeg, 1985, ISBN:0920486045 
HARRISON, Phyllis, ed. The Home Children : Their Personal Stories. Winnipeg, Manitoba : Watson & Dwyer Publishing Ltd., (January 1985). Third Printing. Pp. [1]-271,(1). Illustrated. 8vo, photo-illustrated orange card covers, white and black lettering to front cover, black lettering to spine. "From 1870 to 1930 British 'Home' children -- over 100,000 of them -- arrived to work on Canadian farms. Travelling in groups of up to four hundred, their worldly possessions in small metal trunks, they came from the discipline of British 'Homes' to the land that was believed to over the best hope for their future. Some of them are still living; their personal stories have been compiled and edited by Phyllis Harrison. They recall the long sea voyage andtheir arrival at unknown railway platforms with name tags around their nec ks, to be met by unknown farmers. It was the loneliest moment of their lives. The strange countryside, the cold climate, the new type of farming -- 'we saw pails hanging on the trees and wondered what they were' -- were all asource of wonder. It is fitting that their stories be published for the fi rst time in this, the Year of the Child. From childhood memories, the writers tell of the harsh conditions that separated them from family and friends, of the reality of loneliness, of grinding hard work, discrimination an disappointment. The British Child Emigration movement provided hope, for after serving out their indentures the Home children struck out on their own, free at last, to make their own contribution to Canada." - from rear cover.
