For a number of weeks, we published a series of letters  by one of our iocal fishermen on the controversial subject  of the Japanese Pacific Fishing Fleet. At the same time, we  kept asking various fishermen why Canadians couldn't fish  in the Pacific too. We were told that B.C's Fishermen had  too much invested in their present type of boats and gear  to make the change, and that they didn't like the idea of  going on such long- trips, anyway.  For how many hundreds of years have Frenchmen.  Spaniards, Portugese and Britons fished the Dogger Banks  off Newfoundland, right across the Atlantic from their,  homes?  Now, it seems, the B.C. fishing industry IS going to  launch deep sea fishing-. Fifteen boats are to be purchased  in the U.S.A. for this operation. This first move is an  exploratory one, but a move in the right direction, we believe.  Our Fisheries Minister is pushing for this development.  A fisheries official is quoted as saying "If when the  treaty comes up for review, we can't prove we have been  making use of the deepsea fisheries, the Japanese will be in  a position to re-enter this side of the North Pacific." Sounds  reasonable,  We are well aware that it will be expensive to change  from the present type of boats and gear .to the deepsea type.  Farmers had to make the change to modern machinery,  logging had to do the same, as had every other major'industry. Fishing can be no exception, in this completive world,  and the Japanese will certainly provide competition! ;  I apply chiefly  to the  driver.

We apologize for the  delay but we were not in a  position to reply to your letter  at an earlier date.  The company is anxious to  serve the community of Sechelt  and therefore, do not wish to  take steps which could, in any  way, be regarded as retarding  the development of the  community.  In Hie past, the water system  was operated by the parent  company, Union Steamships  Limited, and when the application for increased rates was  made,.the Pubilc Utilities Commission required that a separate  company be formed so that the  records  of that company could >  be kept entirely separate from j would mean additional charges  the   operations   of   the   parent  for Sechelt Peninsula atop Ad-I1^0?^  vise Real Estate agents your  area prepare to unload all  worthless property stop Advise  local merchants prepare to un^  load unsaleable stock, wormy  raisins, mouldy oranges, haywire Power Saws stop Missionaries "arriving first to investigate cultural levels.

When that had been  done, the P.U.C. were then in  <a position to asses the requirements of the new company and  although the date of the hearing  was in March 1950 and the  formation of the new company  was in July 1952, the P.U.C.  authorized the rates applied for  in 1950 and rejected the company's application for increased  rates in 1953.  This financing can only be  obtained if the company is  showing ,a'n operating profit and  would require to. be financed  out of the revenues of the  company.  With respect to the suggestion  that the- rates of the company,  be reduced to a" flat rate of  $25 per- annum for all private  consumers, this suggestion  would   be   considered   by   this  company but  those commercial  The method of rating applied j consumers   would  hive  to  pay  was believed to. be most equitable for the" whole community  end was not designed nor intended to fall heavily on one  consumer as opposed with  another   and  this  company has  an.even greater water rate and  the school rates -would also be  proportionately increased over  the present authorized rate.

We would point out that the  parent compiaaiy absorbed a loss  on the operation for the Sechelt  w*ter system for many, many  years prior to the new rates  going into effect and -as indicated above, the consumers!  wished a better service. Before  undertaking the improvement  of the service, the company  offered the system to the community but this offer was not  accepted - and ..therefore the company wenit ahead with the  necessary work to improve the<  service. Any fair offer by the  community to acquire the water  system would be given every  consideration by the parent  company.  The present rate structure is  bareiyi ^sufficient to meet the  day to day operating costs of  the company and does not Provide sufficient funds to replace  the present pipes, mains, etc.  as this becomes necessary.
