Vancouver, B.C., February 8th, 1956.  Tenth Annual Report of the Milk Board
For the Year Ended December 31st, 1955
This Report of the Milk Board is made in accordance with section 67 of the " Public
Utilities Act " and covers the calendar year ended December 31st, 1955.
Tables giving up-to-date statistical information relative to sale of fresh fluid dairy
products, similar to that given in previous Reports, are appended hereto.
NEW LEGISLATION
The "Public Utilities Act Amendment Act, 1955," was passed at the last session
of the Legislature. Under this Act the " Public Utilities Act," being chapter 277 of the
" Revised Statutes of British Columbia, 1948," was amended by striking out section 51
and substituting a new section 51, which sets forth in detail the powers of the Board
relative to making regulations respecting milk.
AREAS UNDER CONTROL OF THE BOARD
By Proclamation dated January 14th, 1955, the Lieutenant-Governor, pursuant to
section 2 (2) (a) of the "Public Utilities Act," declared that the Act, in respect of
public utilities within the scope of clause (6) of the definition of " public utility " contained in section 2 (1), shall be applicable only within the Vancouver and Vancouver
Island areas as defined.
During the year there was not any further Proclamation made pursuant to section
2 (2) (a) of the Act. Therefore, the Board's jurisdiction did not extend to any new
areas.
BOARD MEETINGS
The Board did not hold any public hearings during the year. Three hearings were
held to deal with applications for certificates of public convenience and necessity, as
follows: Parksville, June 1st, re Alfred Osolin to distribute milk produced by his own
herd to the public for compensation in District 4, Vancouver Island area; Duncan. June
1st, re George Kocurek to distribute milk produced by his own herd to the public for
compensation in District 2, Vancouver Island area; and Mission City, November 2nd,
re Mission Dairy Limited to operate a milk processing and distribution plant at Mission
City for the purpose of distributing milk to the public for compensation in the Municipality of Mission, the Village of Mission City, the hamlet of Matsqui, and the unorganized territory east of the Municipality of Mission to the Municipality of Kent, all in the
Vancouver area. Transcripts of the proceedings of these hearings are on file in the office
of the Board.
In addition, the Board met twenty-four times in its office to deal with matters of
policy and administration. Minutes of these meetings are recorded in the minute-book
of the Board. Numerous conferences were also held with all classes of distributers and
others, to discuss matters pertaining to the production, supply, distribution, and sale of
milk.

Pursuant to the provisions of the General Regulations of the Board, licences are
issued for a period of twelve months, or portion thereof, ending on March 31st of the
period in respect of which they are issued. A summary of 1954-55 licences issued,

During the year six Class IV licences were suspended upon complaint that milk
being shipped was not of suitable quality for use in the fluid trade; three Class IV licences
were suspended upon complaint that the producers concerned were adulterating their
shipments of milk by the addition of water; and eleven Class IV licences were suspended
upon complaint the dairy-farms of the producers concerned did not meet the standards
prescribed under the " Milk Act." Three of these licences were subsequently cancelled,
ten were reinstated, and seven remained under suspension at December 31st. Cancellation of all other Class IV licences, as shown in the above summary, was due to the producers concerned selling their dairy herds.
ENFORCEMENT
Court proceedings were only taken on one occasion during the year for infractions
of provisions of orders or regulations of the Board. This case involved the refusal by a
milk-dealer to accept from a producer the delivery of a daily supply of milk not exceeding
the amount of the producer's quota contrary to Regulation 27 of the General Regulations
of the Board: found guilty in Magistrate's Court, and an appeal to the County Court
against the conviction was dismissed.
ROYAL COMMISSION
Hearings of the British Columbia Royal Commission on Milk, which were adjourned
on December 21st, 1954, reopened on January 10th and continued until May 6th.
The sole Commissioner, Mr. Justice J. V. Clyne, submitted his report and recommendations to His Honour the Lieutenant-Governor on October 17th, and the report was
released to the public by the Honourable Minister of Agriculture on November 15th.
This report has now been given wide distribution and is being given serious study
by the Government, by those engaged in the industry, and by others.
SUMMARY OF APPLICATIONS RECEIVED AND ORDERS ISSUED
Under date of February 12th, an application was made by George Kocurek, of
Duncan, B.C., for a certificate of public convenience and necessity to permit him to
distribute milk produced by his own dairy herd to the public for compensation in District 2 of the Vancouver Island area. A hearing to deal with this application was held
in Duncan on June 1st. After carefully considering all the submissions, evidence, and
arguments advanced at this hearing, the Board ruled that public convenience and necessity did not, at that time, require distribution of milk by said George Kocurek. The issue
of the certificate as prayed for was therefore refused. An appeal from this ruling of the
Board was made to the Lieutenant-Governor in Council upon a question of fact. This
appeal was heard by the Lieutenant-Governor in Council on September 21st.   By Order REPORT OF THE MILK BOARD, 1955
FF 7
in Council No. 2845, dated December 9th, the subject-matter of the appeal was referred
back to the Board with instructions to re-examine said subject-matter and submit a report
to the Lieutenant-Governor in Council.
Under date of February 16th, an application was made by Alfred Osolin, of Parks-
ville, B.C., for a certificate of public convenience and necessity to permit him to distribute
milk produced by his own dairy herd to the public for compensation in District 4 of the
Vancouver Island area. A hearing to deal with this application was held in Parksville
on June 1st. After carefully considering all the submissions, evidence, and arguments
advanced at this hearing, the Board ruled that public convenience and necessity did not,
at that time, require distribution of milk by said Alfred Osolin. The issue of the certificate as prayed for was therefore refused.

in Council No. 989) were made on April 25th, to come into force in any area defined by
