RECOMMENDATION GC-140-2006:

WHEREAS Ontario's communities are proud of the contribution that Ontarians make to other parts of Canada;

AND WHEREAS Ontarians believe that Ontario must be treated fairly by the federal government;

AND WHEREAS the Government of Ontario is calling on the federal government to address the vertical fiscal imbalance that would see Ontario treated in an equal manner and therefore all provinces and territories receive federal transfers on a per capita basis and a fair share of funding for programs such as infrastructure, training and Employment Insurance;

AND WHEREAS the Government of Ontario is calling on the federal government to refrain from increasing equalization, recognizing the current $11.5 billion equalization program (funded 43 per cent by Ontario tax payers) is sufficient to fulfill its purpose of ensuring that people in all provinces and territories have access to comparable public services at comparable levels of taxation;

AND WHEREAS the Government of Ontario is also calling for a thorough, principled review of fiscal arrangements through a National Public Commission that would include municipal governments;

AND WHEREAS the Government of Ontario has recognized that municipal governments do not have access to revenues and resources equal to their responsibilities;

AND WHEREAS addressing the federal/provincial fiscal imbalance will allow the Government of Ontario to continue to address the provincial/municipal fiscal imbalance which currently undermines the sustainability of Ontario's communities;

AND WHEREAS equitable fiscal arrangements will help build strong communities, a stronger Ontario and a stronger Canada;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Region of Peel supports the Government of Ontario's position and its efforts to address the federal/provincial fiscal imbalance fairly, equitably, without increasing the federal equalization program (and including the creation of a tri-lateral national public commission on fiscal arrangements);

AND FURTHER, that the Right Honourable Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada, the Honourable Dalton McGuinty, Premier of Ontario, the Honourable Jim Flaherty, Federal Minister of Finance, the Honourable John Gerretsen, Ontario Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, the Honourable Marie Bountrogianni, Ontario Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, the Association of Municipalities of Ontario, and Peel Area MPs be advised that the Region of Peel supports Ontario's position on the fiscal imbalance.
