  • 1904-1999

The British Columbi Telephone Company was formed in 1904 as a telephone company and obtained a federal charter in 1916. BC Telephone formed "BC Cellular" in 1985 to compete in the new cellular telephone business. On May 1, 1993, BC Telephone re-organised under holding company "BC Telecom Inc" and changed its legal operating name to "BC Tel". The deregulation of the phone industry in the 1990s combined with the competition of copper lines with cell phones totally changed the business environment. In a 1999 "merger of equals", BC Tel merged with Telus, the telephone operating company in Alberta. The merger created the second largest telephone company in Canada after Bell. It was announced that the merged company would keep the Telus name, but move into BC Tel's former headquarters in Burnaby, British Columbia.

BC Provincial Police

  • 1858-1950

The British Columbia Provincial Police (BCPP) was the policing body for British Columbia until 1950. These forces pre-dated Canadian confederation, preceding the North West Mounted Police by fifteen years and the Ontario Provincial Police by seventeen years.[1] The force is usually dated from the appointment of Chartres Brew in 1858. In the 1930s, the BCPP began to contract to municipalities for policing services, a practice now assumed by the successor force, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). During World War II the BCPP organized recruitment for the armed forces. Special constables attached to the BCPP for the 1935 waterfront strike in Vancouver. Their general duties included enforcing fishing and hunting licences, providing customs and excise functions, livestock brand inspections, managed trap-line permits and dog licences, Vital Statistics, and served civil court documents. They also functioned as Court prosecutors, jailers and prisoner escorts, and during the labour troubles in Vancouver during the Great Depression helped enforce martial law against strikers on Vancouver's troubled docks, evicting protesters from the city's main post office. At the time of its dissolution on August 15, 1950, the force consisted of 520 men and their budget was $2,250,000. The 492 members who stayed on were taken on as part of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police's "E" Division, which has had the contract for provincial policing in BC ever since.

BC Rail Ltd.

  • February 27, 1912 – July 15, 2004

BC Rail (reporting mark BCOL, BCIT), known as the British Columbia Railway between 1972 and 1984 and as the Pacific Great Eastern Railway (PGE) before 1972, was a railway that operated in the Canadian province of British Columbia between 1912 and 2004. It was a class II regional railway and the third-largest in Canada, operating 2,320 km (1,440 mi) of mainline track. Chartered in 1912, the railway was acquired by the provincial government in 1918 after running into financial difficulties. Its operations were owned by the public as a crown corporation from 1918 until 2004, when the provincial government leased operations for 999 years to CN. The details of the sale/lease to CN, which are related to the OmniTRAX affair, have become the subject of protracted public inquiry as part of the proceedings of the trial surrounding a scandal known as the British Columbia Legislature Raids Affair, or "Railgate". Government leaders and civil servants involved with the arrangements to CN have refused to comment on the deal because the matter "is before the courts". BC Rail's southern terminus was at Squamish and its northern terminus at Quesnel during its inital years, expanding significantly between 1949 and 1984. Primarily a freight railway, it also offered passenger service, as well as some excursion services, most notably the Royal Hudson excursion train. The railway's operations only reached profitability in 1980, due to large capital and operating debts which were intended as subsidies to develop and sustain mining and timber economies and employment in the regions it accessed. In the 1980s it regularly posted significant profits, contributing to the public treasury significantly, and maintained a lower operating debt than any of the continent's other major railways. Controversy over CN's management of the line has focused on layoffs, toxic spills and other safety concerns, and cuts in service to some regions. The line has generated profits for CN in the range of $25 million per year since its takeover of the railway's operations in 2004.
