AREAS UNDER CONTROL OF THE BOARD
Three new areas were brought under the control of the board during the year;
namely, the Ladysmith, Parksville-Qualicum, and Alberni areas. Effective on December
15th, the Ladysmith and Nanaimo areas were consolidated. Areas now controlled within

products to the retail stores of Canada Safeway Limited in Greater Vancouver, and Ladysmith, October 21st, re Baby's Own Dairy, Nanaimo, to extend its operations into the
Ladysmith area. Transcripts of the proceedings of all hearings are on file in the office
of the Board.
In addition, the Board held twenty-eight meetings in its office to deal with matters
of policy and administration. Minutes of all these meetings are recorded in the minute-
book of the Board. Throughout the year numerous conferences were also held with all
classes of distributers engaged in the industry and others, in both controlled and uncontrolled areas, to discuss various matters pertaining to the production, supply, distribution, and sale of milk.
BONDING OF MILK-DEALERS
By Order in Council No. 607, approved the 13th day of March, 1953, His Honour
the Lieutenant-Governor in Council approved Regulations re Bonding of Milk-dealers.
Under these regulations every milk-dealer, on or before April 1st, 1953, and before being
issued a Milk Board Distributer's Licence, Class I, had to establish financial responsibility
to the satisfaction of the Milk Board in an amount sufficient to guarantee payment for all
milk received from primary producers for use in the fluid trade.
These regulations have been satisfactorily put into effect, and financial responsibility
in varying amounts, depending on method of paying primary producers, has been established by all Class I licence-holders for the licence-year 1953-54.
