Decision: Appeal by an expropriating authority from an order by a trial judge directing how costs of an arbitration proceeding should be taxed in an expropriation proceeding conducted pursuant to the British Columbia Railway Act, R.S.B.C. 1911, c. 194. The arbitration proceeding had arisen from the expropriation of certain lands owned by the Respondent. The trial judge gave a direction which could be construed as requiring taxation of costs as between solicitor and client. On the appeal it was held that costs should be taxed as between party and party, but on a liberal scale.
