"The London Public Utilities Commission is unique in Canada because, in addition to the traditional PUC duties of water and electricity, it is responsible for the city's parks and recreation. The film shows the building of the $24-million pipeline to Lake Huron; the city's electrical supply system; the 1,500 acres of parks, including a children's paradise, Storybook Gardens; and some of the 50 recreational activities sponsored by the PUC - from pee-wee baseball by day to tennis under lights at night. The film illustrates the effect on London of the PUC's work. Industry's multitude of uses for water and electricity makes a good supply of services a necessary asset for a fast-growing city."
