SCOPE OF REPORT.
This report of the Public Utilities Commission is made in accordance with section
64 of the " Public Utilities Act" and covers the calendar year ended December 31st,
1947. It does not cover the work of the Commission under the " Motor Carrier Act," a
separate report of which is being made pursuant to section 36 of that Act.
REGULATIONS MADE DURING 1947 UNDER THE
" PUBLIC UTILITIES ACT."
The regulations were amended during the year to permit refunds of fees when
applications are withdrawn or refused.
OPERATIONS OF PUBLIC UTILITY SYSTEMS.
New Construction and Operation, and Expansion by
Public Utility Systems.
New construction or operation, or expansion, of a public utility system requires the
approval or consent of the Commission under section 12 or 12a of tha " Public Utilities
Act." A summary of applications for certificates of public convenience and necessity
received or decided during the year is set out in Table 1. Each of the certificates
granted by the Commission and referred to in the table was subsequently approved by
the Lieutenant-Governor in Council.
In the case of extensions of a more or less routine nature, such as extensions of
distribution systems to serve new customers, the Commission, pursuant to the powers
set out in section 12a, relieves the public utility from the requirement of obtaining
a certificate of public convenience and necessity. A summary of extensions permitted
under section 12a is set out in Table 2. It will be noted that the majority are extensions
made by the British Columbia Electric Railway Company, Limited. Of the 199 extensions of electric power systems permitted to this company under section 12a, 198 were
extensions of electric distribution-lines, particulars of which are set out in Table 3.
The other extension comprises a programme of general improvement and enlargement
of sub-station, sub-transmission, and distribution facilities in the Greater Vancouver
area.
The extensions of transportation systems referred to in Table 2 comprise route
revisions and extensions and new routes in New Westminster, Oak Bay, Saanich, North
Vancouver, Burnaby, and Vancouver, arising partly from the substitution of buses for
street-cars and more notably from public demands for new routes and extensions. The
extension by Okanagan Telephone Company referred to in Table 2 comprises the
installation of new exchanges at Westbank and Peachland and the laying of an
additional cable between Westbank and Kelowna, these improvements being part of
a general development programme which is to extend over a period of years.    The H 8 BRITISH COLUMBIA.
extension by Lytton Water Supply Company, Limited, comprises a general rehabilitation
of the system. The other extensions referred to in Table 2 are of a more routine nature.
A number of letters were received by the Commission from persons desiring
extensions of public utility systems to serve their premises. Many of these called for
merely an explanation of the principles and terms on which the extensions should be
made.   Those which were more in the nature of complaints are summarized in Table 4.
New Supplies op Electric Power for the Lower Mainland Area.
The report of the Commission for 1946 outlined the development of the Bridge
River hydro-electric project up to the end of that year. During 1947 certificates of
public convenience and necessity were granted to British Columbia Electric Railway
Company, Limited, and associated companies to proceed with the second and third
stages of the development. The particulars are summarized in Table 1. Each of the
three stages now authorized provides for a capacity of 62,000 horse-power, making
a total of 186,000 horse-power. It is expected that the first stage will be completed
by October 1st, 1948; the second by January 15th, 1949; and the third by October
1st, 1949.
Transportation Franchises in Greater Victoria Area.
During the year, as indicated in Table 1, the Commission approved transportation
franchises granted to British Columbia Electric Railway Company, Limited, by the
City of Victoria and the Municipalities of Oak Bay and Esquimalt. A transportation
franchise granted by the Municipality of Saanich to Vancouver Island Coach Lines,
Limited, was approved at the same time under the " Motor Carrier Act." In the recent
past the Victoria area was served by an old street-railway system, supplemented to a
small extent by buses, and by two separate bus systems, each system being operated
independently of the others. The new franchises provide for the abandonment of the
street-railway system at an early date and the operation by two companies of an
integrated modern bus system with full transfer privileges.
Discontinuance and Suspension of Service.
Particulars of applications by public utilities to discontinue or suspend service are
set forth in Table 5.
Complaints as to Service by Public Utilities.
Particulars of complaints as to service provided by public utilities are set forth in
Table 6.
RATES.
Investigation of British Columbia Electric Railway Company, Limited,
and Associated and Subsidiary Companies.
A review of the investigation by the Commission of British Columbia Electric
Railway Company, Limited, and associated and subsidiary companies, is set out in the
Annual Report of the Commission for 1946. During 1947 it was necessary to permit
the filing, on an interim basis, of substantial general increases in transportation fares
in Vancouver and of gas rates in Vancouver and district to offset increasingly large
operating losses in these services. Definite preparations were made, however, for a
review of all rates of the companies at public hearings to be held as soon as possible
during 1948. The companies have been instructed to file information necessary for
such a review, and this information will be furnished by the Commission to the
interested municipalities to enable them to prepare for the hearings. REPORT OF PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION, 1947. H 9
Rate Changes consented to pursuant to Sections 16 and 18
of " Public Utilities Act."
A complete statement of all rate changes authorized during 1947 appears in
Table 7. This table shows that in general, except in respect of transportation and gas
service, public utilities have not required substantial general increases in rates. In the
case of transportation and gas services, however, increased wages and increased costs
of materials have been quickly reflected in the cost of service and have made necessary
substantial general rate increases.
Rate Complaints.
The rate complaints dealt with during the year are summarized in Table 8.
SECURITY ISSUES, MORTGAGES, AND SALES.
Security Issues and Mortgages.
Applications during 1947 under section 21 of the " Public Utilities Act " for
approval of security issues and mortgages are summarized in Table 9. This table
indicates that several public utility companies took advantage of the comparatively low
interest rates which prevailed through most of the year to make security issues in
substantial amounts for refunding or to obtain funds for new construction.
Sales of Assets of Public Utility Systems.
Transfers of property dealt with during 1947 under section 23 of the " Public
Utilities Act" are summarized in Table 10.
REVENUE AND EXPENSES, 1940-47.
A statement of revenue and expenses of the Public Utilities Commission under
the " Public Utilities Act" and the " Motor Carrier Act " is set out in Table 11. The
figures shown are for the calendar year and not the fiscal year, and figures for previous
years have been included for comparative purposes. Revenue under the " Motor Carrier
Act " has been compiled from monthly reports made by the Superintendent of Motor
Carriers. Revenue under the " Public Utilities Act " represents fees on applications
granted during the year, even though the fees may not have been transferred from
Suspense Account to Revenue Account until the following year.
MISCELLANEOUS.
Portland Canal Telephone and Telegraph Company, Limited, discontinued operation
of its small telephone system at Stewart during the war. On June 5th, 1947, a
representative of the company appeared before the Commission to request permission
to reinstall the system. An informal conditional approval was granted, but no certificate
of public convenience and necessity was issued.
Complaints were received from K. Blacklock at Cloverdale and from C. W. Johnson
at Thrums regarding the use of their land for electric power transmission-lines.
A complaint was received from R. Malone disputing the title of H. B. Canning to
certain water-mains used by him in the operation of his waterworks system at Youbou.
The Commission is of the opinion that complaints such as the three mentioned above
should be settled by arbitration or in the Courts, and the complainants were so advised. H 10
