Blue/Bloomberg/Getty Images The Uber Technologies Inc. car service application (app) is demonstrated for a photograph on an Apple Inc. iPhone in New York. The new national budget unveiled Wednesday by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Liberal government took aim at ride-sharing providers such as Uber Technologies Inc [UBER.UL], looking to end a tax advantage they have over traditional taxi companies. Popular Searches +5.51% The budget statement said Trudeau's government plans to amend Canada's Excise Tax Act to redefine ride-sharing firms as taxi companies. That would force them to collect the goods and services tax (GST) on every ride provided, just as taxi operators are required to do. Under current law, some drivers for ride-share operators make use of a so-called small-supplier provision that exempts the first C$30,000 of sales from the tax.

(Id. at p. 1315.) The facts in Cummings were identical in all material respects to those here. Both juries convicted a defendant of robbery without any instruction on this crime's definition, though both juries were given an intent instruction. At Merritt's trial, this instruction told jurors that the mental state required for the crime of robbery is the specific intent to permanently deprive the owner of the property. But what was the crime of robbery? The judge never explained. Jurors were thus left to believe that they could define that term which the judge repeated over and over again but gave no definition of on their own. Cummings held that never was the right answer to the question of when this kind of error could be harmless even in cases where the defendant did not dispute the existence of the predicate facts or where the evidence overwhelmingly established all of the elements. (Ibid.) About a month after our Cummings decision, the high court ruled that a judge misstating the standard of proof for finding a crime can never be harmless either, because this error vitiates all the jury's findings.
