Judson Ambulance Supply Centre

RECOMMENDATION GC-16-2004:

Whereas there are many critical funding issues in respect of the land ambulance service in Ontario that have not been adequately addressed by the Government of Ontario;

And Whereas, the Provincial Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care have advised that the central purchasing and supply facility for ambulance services (Judson Ambulance Supply Centre) will be closing on March 31, 2004;

And Whereas, there are many ambulance services, particularly in Northern Ontario, that rely on the Judson Ambulance Supply Centre to purchase vehicles and equipment at competitive prices;

Therefore be it resolved that the Government of Ontario be requested to take steps to immediately address the critical funding issues for ambulance services including:

- The absence of the provincial 50/50 cost share with municipalities

- The inaccurate funding template upon which base funding is determined
- The 1% Provincial cap on wage increases while labour rates have increased in the range of 20%
- The lack of recognition of the Advanced Care Paramedic level of service

- The inequitable cross border billing formula

And further, that the Government of Ontario halt the closure of the Judson Ambulance Supply Centre until acceptable alternate arrangements for cooperative purchasing and supply of ambulance services has been established;

And further, that a copy of this resolution be circulated to the Premier of Ontario, the Minister of Health and all Peel area MPPs.

F. OTHER BUSINESS

1. Motion Regarding the Nutrient Management Act, Prepared at the Request of Regional Councillor Morrison

RECOMMENDATION GC-30-2004:

Whereas the agricultural community in the Greater Toronto Area and the Province of Ontario are generally supportive of the objectives of the Nutrient Management Act and participated in a number of forums to ensure there was open discussions prior to the passing of the Act;

And Whereas the Nutrient Management Act, as passed, was to be managed by the Ministry of Agriculture and Food integrated as part of the Ministry's supportive farm initiatives;

And Whereas the Province appears to be considering a change in the lead ministry from the Ministry of Agriculture and Food to the Ministry of the Environment;

And Whereas the agricultural community is concerned that this change in direction by the Province signals a major shift to a ministry that is largely uninformed about farm practices;

Therefore be it resolved that Council for the Region of Peel formally requests the Province, as a demonstration of good faith to the agricultural community, to retain all aspects of the Nutrient Management Act, including enforcement, in the Ministry of Agricultural and Food;

And further, that this resolution be forwarded to the Premier of Ontario; the Minister of Agriculture and Food; the Minister of the Environment; Ernie Eves, M.P.P. for Dufferin-Peel-Wellington-Grey; the Association of Municipalities of Ontario; Rural Ontario Municipalities Association; and the Work Group on the Greater Toronto Area Agricultural Action Plan.
