 PROVINCE OF BRITISH COLUMBIA
THE MILK BOARD
ANNUAL REPORT
For the Year ended December 31st
1949
VICTORIA, B.C.:
Printed by Don McDiAEMro, Printer to the King's Most Excellent Majesty.
1950.  To His Honour the Lieutenant-Governor in Council
of the Province of British Columbia.
May it please Your Honour:
Sir,—I have the honour to transmit herewith, in accordance with section 67 of the
" Public Utilities Act," the Fourth Annual Report of the Milk Board under that Act
for the year ended December 31st, 1949.
E. C. CARR,
Chairman, Milk Board.
Vancouver, B.C., February 10th, 1950.  FOURTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE MILK BOARD
For the Year ended December 31st, 1949.
During 1949 the time of the Board was largely taken up with matters of administration. Few matters of a contentious nature had to be dealt with. There were
no adjustments in either primary-producer or consumer rates during the year. Rates
which became effective on June 16th, 1948, remained in effect through 1949 in all
areas in which the Board exercises jurisdiction.
The reduction in sales of some fresh fluid dairy products which was evident at
the close of 1948 continued through the early part of 1949. This was particularly
true during the first six months when rates were 2 cents a quart higher than during
the corresponding period of 1948. However, final figures for the year reveal that some
recovery took place and that over-all sales for 1949 compare favourably with those
of the preceding year. This is especially noticeable in retail sales. Actual increases
and decreases in both retail and wholesale sales, 1949 as compared to 1948, are given
in Table II appended to this Report.
Other up-to-date statistical information, similar to that given in last year's
Report, is also appended hereto.
AREAS UNDER THE CONTROL OF THE MILK BOARD.
No new areas became subject to the provisions of the " Public Utilities Act "
respecting milk during the year. The four controlled areas within the Province are
the Greater Victoria, Vancouver, Duncan, and Nanaimo areas.
BOARD MEETINGS.
The Board held three public hearings during the year, as follows: Shawnigan
Lake, March 31st;   Courtenay, April 1st;   Kamloops, September 21st.
Two hearings were also held to deal with specific applications. The first was at
Victoria on March 17th, and the second at Vancouver on March 18th. In addition,
forty-one meetings of the Board were held in its office to deal with matters of policy
and administration. Complete minutes of all meetings are recorded in the minute-
book of the Board. Throughout the year, numerous conferences were also held with
primary producers, producer-distributers, milk-dealers, and others in all areas to
discuss various matters pertaining to the production, supply, distribution, and sale of
milk.

SUMMARY OF APPLICATIONS RECEIVED AND ORDERS ISSUED.
Order No. 23.—Application having been received from milk-dealers in the Vancouver area for an order prohibiting the use of any type of milk-bottle cap not presently
in use, the Board issued Order No. 23 on February 5th. This was an interim order,
to remain in effect until the 1st day of May, or until such earlier date as was sufficient
to enable the application to be heard and determined. It provided the prohibition
requested.
Order No. 24-—Order No. 24 (approved by Order in Council No. 590) was issued
to become effective on and after April 1st. This order amended Order No. 6 to provide
a simplified method for collection of annual Class IV licence fees.
Order No. 25.—The Board held a hearing in Vancouver on March 18th to receive
representations from interested parties in respect to the subject-matter of Order
No. 23. Order No. 25 (approved by Order in Council No. 865) was issued to become
effective on and after May 1st. This order rescinded Order No. 23 and amended
Order No. 3. Such amendment provided that any distributer of milk must first obtain
the written approval of the Board before using or adopting any type or size of container
or type of milk-bottle cap or similar device not used by the distributer on or before
February 1st.
An application having been received from R. A. C. Rennie, Royal Oak, Vancouver
Island, for a certificate of public convenience and necessity in respect to the commencing and operating business as a producer-distributer in the Greater Victoria area,
the Board held a hearing in the City of Victoria on March 17th. The issue of this
certificate was refused.
Following receipt of an application from Sunny Brae Dairy, Limited, Duncan, to
have the Shawnigan Lake district defined as an area in which regulations and orders of
the Board shall have effect, a public hearing was held at Shawnigan Lake on March 31st.
It was decided that the services of the Board were not required in this area at that
time.
Following receipt of an application from the Comox Co-operative Creamery Association, Courtenay, to have the City of Courtenay and vicinity defined as an area in
which regulations and orders of the Board shall have effect, a public hearing was held
in the City of Courtenay on April 1st. It was decided that the services of the Board
were not required in this area at that time.
Application having been received from the Municipal Council of the City of
Kamloops to have the provisions of the " Public Utilities Act," in so far as appropriate
to the production, distribution, and sale of milk, declared applicable within the area
of the City of Kamloops, a public hearing was held in the City of Kamloops on September 21st.    Final decision in this matter has not been made.
CONCLUSION.
Generally speaking, production conditions in all areas controlled by the Board were
favourable during the year. Most primary producers harvested normal, or better than
normal, yields of home-grown feeds. Prices of feed grains and concentrates required
to supplement home-grown feeds did not change materially throughout the year.
Some difficulty in delivery was experienced during the winter months, both by primary
producers and milk-dealers. This was caused by storm conditions. However, such
difficulties as arose were generally overcome, and there was not any interruption to
the continuity of supply to either retail or wholesale consumers.
The Board again wishes to express its appreciation for the co-operation of those
engaged in the industry as producers and milk-dealers, to officials of other Government
departments, and to the public as a whole. REPORT OF THE MILK BOARD, 1949.
