The following excerpt is from Dobbin v Alexander Enterprises Limited, 1987 CanLII 3961 (NL CA):

Counsel contended that the court should use a global approach. This perhaps is what Mifflin, C.J.N., was thinking of in the passage from Sears v. Crawley, supra, set forth above. It is an indefinite method which need not be employed where a judge has evidence upon which he can draw to produce an income figure to be capitalized.
