Business Career

After George’s marriage, he continued his fruit and vegetable brokerage business.

In 1918 he was the manager of Charles E. Merritt’s and Charles B. Warsnop’s brokerage firm, which was in the Orpheum Building at number 515, 751 Granville (later called the Lyric Theatre Building).

In 1920, George became the manager of Mutual (Vancouver) Limited, which was part of the Nash-Simington fruit syndicate that controlled much of western Canada’s fruits and vegetable distribution.

Several individual producers and producers’ cooperatives complained that the syndicate was too dominant and that it was over-charging the producers.

In August 1924, Mutual (Vancouver) Limited agreed to pay back some of the extra charges.

The federal government became involved. Lewis Duncan was the head of a royal commission that investigated fruit-growing and marketing operations in Canada.

The provincial government attempted to prosecute both George Snow and Mutual (Vancouver) Limited. Because of a lack of evidence, the police magistrate dismissed the charge.

A federal prosecution was more successful. The court convicted both the corporations and the higher officials of the syndicate. However, the court acquitted the local individuals, including George.

George continued to work as a fruit and vegetable broker. About 1927 he started his own brokerage business, called G.H. Snow Limited. Around the same time, George and Dorothy moved to 4409 Pine Crescent, where they lived for many years.

Although George’s business was successful, he sometimes had to face further legal obstacles. In the 1930s he was charged with failing to comply with the provincial Sales on Consignment Act.

Dorothy Snow (daughter of George Herbert Snow)

Looking for new blood, Jen St. Denis / North Shore News, October 21, 2012; http://www.nsnews.com/news/looking-for-new-blood-1.346277: “. . . Dorothy Reeves is part of that generation. Now 86, the West Vancouver resident has volunteered at the Lions Gate Hospital Auxiliary for 42 years. She has a degree in child psychology from UBC and worked at the Willingdon Mental Health Centre, but she left her profession to become a stay-at-home mother. Reeves found a new purpose, and a welcome respite from looking after small children, when she began volunteering at the auxiliary. Now widowed, she calls her once-a-week volunteering shift at the information desk “the most important thing I do. . .. ”
