2. Staff Reports

a) Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) Achieved $45 Million in Efficiencies (Oral)
Presentation by Keith Ward, Commissioner of Housing and Property

Received 2006-934

See also Resolutions 2006-935 and 2006-974

Moved by Councillor Mullin,
Seconded by Councillor Prentice;

Whereas the Federal government has identified savings of $45 million associated with Social Housing mortgage subsidy costs and has announced the diversion of these savings for other purposes;

And whereas, the lending insurance operations of the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) are generating surpluses substantially in excess of contingent liability requirements and again appear to be diverted to non-housing expenditure areas;

And whereas, substantial savings in Social Housing subsidies are expected to occur in future as project mortgages expire, and CMHC surpluses are reasonably forecast to continue to exceed requirements;

And whereas, the prior investment of billions of Federal dollars in the current Social Housing stock is at risk because of prior under-funding of project capital replacement reserves, threatening the on-going viability of this stock;

Therefore be it resolved, that the Prime Minister be requested to re-invest savings and surpluses from Federal Social Housing and CMHC expenditures into ensuring current Social Housing projects have access to sufficient funding to off-set deficiencies in their capital replacement reserves;

And further that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Ontario Caucus of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and David Tilson, MP, Dufferin-Caledon.

6. COMMUNICATIONS

a) Alert: Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO), dated September 11, 2006, Advising that the Province will Take Action on the AMO Proposal for a LCBO Deposit Return System, and Advising that Consumers will be Able to Return all LCBO Containers to Brewers Retail for a Deposit Return Starting in February 2007

Received 2006-960

b) Marolyn Morrison, Mayor, Town of Caledon, Letter dated September 11, 2006, Providing a Copy of a Caledon Environmental Advisory Committee (CEA) Resolution Requesting that the Region of Peel Endorse the Enclosed Resolution and Forward it to the Minister of the Environment

RECOMMENDATION WM-22-2006:

Whereas, the Region of Peel has achieved a 45 per cent residential waste diversion rate and could claim a present 71 per cent residential waste diversion rate if Energy From Waste (EFW) tonnages diverted from landfill were counted;

And Whereas, Peel targets a residential waste diversion rate (without EFW tonnages included) of 60 per cent by 2008 and 70 per cent by 2016;

And Whereas, Peel believes that per capita generation of waste will increase over and above residential waste from steady population growth within the Region by 2031;

And Whereas, Peel facilities for residential waste diversion are currently operating close to capacity;

And Whereas, Peel Region is not responsible for Industrial, Commercial and Institutional (ICI) waste, with the notable exception of product waste and packaging which has been acquired by residents;

And Whereas, Peel, by itself, cannot effectively increase the amount of diversion by the ICI sectors;

And Whereas, Peel has historically observed that municipalities in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) generate from twice to three times the amount of ICI waste than they do residential waste;

And Whereas, Peel is aware that the Private and ICI sector is actively seeking expansion of at least five landfill sites for waste;

And Whereas, Peel is aware that very little progress has been evident in diverting materials from landfill since the Province's 2004 Discussion Paper 'Ontario's 60 per cent Waste Diversion Goal';

And Whereas, it is likely that most other municipalities besides Peel in the GTA and the province at large are experiencing the same considerable pressures to divert or reduce waste;

Therefore be it resolved that the Region of Peel, in cooperation with the Town of Caledon and its Environmental Advisory Committee (CEAC), urge the Province to:

1. Increase its efforts to implement the action items addressed in the 2004 Discussion Paper designed to reduce the total amount of waste going to landfill;

2. Increase its efforts under the Waste Diversion Act to enforce waste reductions in already designated items;

3. Increase its efforts to designate additional items under the Waste Diversion Act and involve more producers in waste reduction innovation, and;

4. Increase its efforts to work with product manufacturers to design product packaging which is amenable to recycling and to reduce it to the minimum required to protect the product from damage during transportation.
