According to this:
http://www.insulators.info/insulator_geography/

They were used in Vancouver. Seems to be a low power electrical insulator. I think there was something written up on this insulator in the old Canadian Insulator Collector magazine.
I'll take a look tonight.

Hi All:
I can offer up that the BC smooth base insulators were found around Regina Sask. Not very many were found with a smooth base.
The drip point version was found Around Vancouver and in a few places on the BC coast.
Just info ............. Robin

Thanks all, Robin I've definitely saw a line running along the #1 highway outside of Regina so I might have to check it out!
