"Mr* Goldie reported that to date he had
had no chance to see Mr* Fillmore* He had seen both Mr* Pea-
fold and Major MeDonald in Victoria* Neither had given him
the least encouragement re* expropriation of the system*
The Sec* reported that he had had a meeting with Mr* Van
Aekeren of the Irrigation Co* and had been informed that the
Co* had applied to.the Public Utility Commission for an increase of #2*00 per acre foot.in the irrigation rate* The
Commission replied that they did not want to hold a public
hearing, and suggested that the Co* & the District try to
come to an agreement between themselves*
This lead to considerable discussion about the possibilities of purchasing the irrigation system* It was finally decided to hold a general meeting of the water users of
the District*

every water user within the Irrigation
District that a General Meeting will be

DUCK LAKE FLUME
The Sec* reported that Mr* Alec Marshall
of the Water Rights Branch of Kelowna had been in to see him
and wanted to know what was going to be done about the renewing of the Duck Lake flume*
It was decided to write each water user on the Flat saying that the Trustees had decided to abandon the flume* It wac
was thought that a letter of this nature would stir up some
action on the part of the "Flat".

the land owners who are interested in
the wooden flume end of the Bypass
