PRINTED BY
AUTHORITY OF THE LEGISLATIVE  ASSEMBLY.
VICTORIA, B.C. :
Printed !>y Charles F. Banfield, Printer to the King's Most Excellent Majesty.
3 940.  To His Honour the Lieutenant-Governor in Council
of the Province of British Columbia.
May it please Your Honour:
Sir,—We have the honour to transmit herewith the First Annual Report of the Public
Utilities Commission for the year ended December 31st, 1939.
PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION.
W. A. Carrothers,
Chairman.
L. W. Patmore,
Commissioner.
J. C. MacDonald,
Commissioner.  First Annual Report of the Public Utilities Commission
for the Calendar Year ended December 31st, 1939.
By section 64 of the " Public Utilities Act" the Public Utilities Commission is required,
on or before the 1st day of March in each year, to make a report to the Lieutenant-Governor
in Council on matters dealt with by the Commission during the previous calendar year. In
pursuance of this provision, the Commission respectfully submits the following:—
The " Public Utilities Act " was passed in 1938 and assented to on December 9th of that
year, but the Commission was not appointed until 1939 and, consequently, this is the first
annual report of the Commission.
The Commission as at present constituted was appointed on January 31st, 1939, the
appointments being effective on February 1st of that year. The Commission began its
work shortly after its inauguration. Suitable offices were obtained in the Central Building
at Victoria. Mr. A. B. Jackson was appointed Acting-Secretary at the first meeting of the
Commission, held on February 10th, until more permanent arrangements as to staff should be
made, and was appointed Secretary on May 4th. Other officers, clerks, and employees were
appointed from time to time as the work of the Commission progressed.
Under the " Public Utilities Act " a number of persons and corporations providing public
utility services are excluded by sections 2 and 3, and one of the first actions of the Commission
was to ascertain what persons and corporations claimed exemption. A list of public utilities
which come under the provisions of the " Public Utilities Act " is set out in Schedule A.
Regulations were made from time to time to carry out the provisions of the Act, and
particulars of the regulations in effect on December 31st, 1939, are set forth in Schedule B.
Applications and complaints to the Commission and summaries of the findings of the
Commission thereon are set forth in Schedule C. These are classified according to the
nature of the applications and complaints.
Summaries of the findings of the Commission in regard to matters respecting which the
Commission has acted of its own motion or upon request of the Attorney-General are set
forth in Schedule D.
SCHEDULES.
SCHEDULE A.
List of Public Utilities which are Subject to the Provisions of the " Public
Utilities Act."
Railways, Street-railways, and Tramways—
British Columbia Electric Railway Company, Ltd.
Vancouver Power Company, Ltd.  (lines operated by British Columbia Electric Railway
Company, Ltd.).
City of Nelson street-railway system.
Note.—The Canadian Pacific Railway and the Canadian National Railways and part
of the B.C. Electric Railway system are under Dominion jurisdiction, and the Pacific
Great Eastern Railway is exempted from the " Public Utilities Act" by section 2
thereof.
Several industrial railways were  subject to the provisions  of the  Act until  the  1939
amendments were made.    No action was taken with regard to them and the effect
of the amendments is to exclude them from the Act, leaving them under the control
of the Railway Department of the Province. N 6 BRITISH COLUMBIA.
Ferries—
The Commission has not as yet exercised its powers under the " Public Utilities Act " in
relation to ferries, as in most cases the ferries are operated under licences issued
under the " Ferries Act" and rates and service are closely connected with the
amount of subsidy granted by the Provincial Government.
Toll-bridges—
First Narrows Bridge Company, Ltd.
Note.—The Second Narrows Bridge over Burrard Inlet is under Dominion jurisdiction,
and the Pattullo Bridge over the Fraser River at New Westminster is owned and
operated by the Provincial Government. No action has been taken by the Commission as yet with regard to toll-bridges.
Telephone and Telegraph Systems—
Okanagan Telephone Company.
Solar Telephones, Ltd.
Summerland Telephone Company, Ltd.
Note.—The B.C. Telephone Company, which operates approximately 90 per cent, of the
telephones in the Province, is under Dominion jurisdiction. However, it has several
small subsidiaries which are local companies—namely, Chilliwack Telephones, Ltd.;
Kootenay Telephone Company, Ltd.; Mission Telephone Company, Ltd.; and Northwest Telephone Company, Ltd. The City of Prince Rupert, which operates its own
system, is exempt from the " Public Utilities Act " in respect of services furnished
within its own boundaries. The Dominion Government operates a small number
of telephones in the Province and there are a few very small local systems not mentioned above. The Commission has as yet taken no action with regard to telephones,
except on applications concerning Okanagan Telephone Company.
Gas Systems—
Victoria Gas Company, Ltd.
B.C. Electric Power & Gas Company, Ltd.
Note.—The City of Nelson operates a gas plant, but all services are furnished within the
city boundaries and the system is therefore exempt from the " Public Utilities Act "
by section 2 thereof.
Electric Power Systems—
These are listed in Schedule C, Part II.
Waterworks Systems—
These are listed in Schedule C, Part II.
Motor-vehicle Transportation Systems—
In the regulation of motor-vehicle transportation systems the Commission, soon after its
inauguration, arranged for co-operation with the Department of Public Works which
administered Part V. of the " Highway Act," as that Act already provided for most
of the essential matters in the control of such systems. Action was taken by the
Commission under the " Public Utilities Act" only where adequate action could not
be taken by the Department of Public Works under the " Highway Act." At the
1939 session of the Legislature Part V. of the " Highway Act" was repealed and
the " Public Utilities Act " was amended so that the only motor-vehicles thereafter
coming under that Act were those operating as part of or connected with a railway,
street-railway, or tramway. The " Motor Carrier Act," being chapter 36 of the
Statutes of 1939, was passed at the same session and provided a somewhat broader
system of control of motor carriers. Administration of this Act was placed in the
hands of the Public Utilities Commission and section 66 of the Act provided that it
would come into operation on March 1st, 1940. REPORT OF PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION, 1939.
