RECOMMENDATION GC-219-2007:

That City of Mississauga Resolution 0233-2007 regarding “payment-in-lieu-of-taxes” made by the Federal government, set out as follows, be endorsed:

“Whereas on July 5, 2007 the Federal Court of Canada released three (3) decisions relating to an application for judicial review by the City of Montreal respecting the determination of payments-in-lieu-of-taxes owed to that City in respect of land occupied by two (2) Crown corporations, the Montreal Port Authority and Radio-Canada;

And whereas, the Court determined it had jurisdiction to consider this matter and the way in which the Payments in Lieu of Taxes Act (“PLTA”) is applied by the Federal Government;

And whereas, the Court confirmed that federal officials cannot arbitrarily decide how much they will pay to municipalities in lieu of property tax, and that the federal government should assume and pay its fair share of the costs of local government in communities where it owns real property and instead make PILT payments with reference to the tax rates set by the City;

And whereas, the Federal Government has indicated an intention to appeal the court decisions;

And whereas, on September 6, 2007 the Federation of Canadian Municipalities urged the Federal Government to “do the right thing” and pay its fair share of local taxes, and withdraw its appeal;

Now be it resolved that:

  1. The City of Mississauga support the motion of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities calling for the Federal Government to withdraw its appeal and to pay its fair share of the cost of the local government in communities where it owns real property;
  2. That given these recent court rulings supporting the Federal Government paying its fair share, the Province of Ontario be requested to rescind those portions of Ontario Regulation 282/98 establishing payments in lieu of taxes for airport authorities based on a per passenger formula set in 1998 and not adjusted, and return to assessing federal property on the same basis as all other property, market value assessment, and
  3. That a copy of this Resolution be forwarded to the Prime Minister, the Federal Minister of Transport, the Minister of Public Works and Government Services Canada, the Premier of Ontario and Leaders of the Opposition Parties; local MPs and MPPs, the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, Big City Mayor’s Caucus and the Association of Municipalities of Ontario.”

HE-B1. Report of the Emergency and Protective Services Committee (EPSC-2007-3) meeting held on October 11, 2007

In relation to Item 4c within the report of the Emergency and Protective Services Committee (EPSC-2007-3) meeting held on October 11, 2007, Councillor Palleschi placed the following motion, which carried:

RECOMMENDATION GC-227-2007:

Whereas The Region of Peel continues to experience unacceptable and lengthy ambulance offload times at hospital emergency departments that delay Peel Paramedics from returning to the street to respond to emergency calls;

And whereas, ambulance offload delays cost Region of Peel taxpayers approximately $4 million, annually, in lost service to the community;

And whereas, KPMG, hired by the Region of Peel to study offload delay, has provided 16 recommendations which incorporate not only system improvements for Paramedic Services but also address the root causes of offload delays: lack of acute care and long-term care capacity in Peel; ineffective in-patient flow, and; a lack of coordination of care;

And whereas, at a meeting of the area hospital and Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) CEOs to discuss the KPMG recommendations, it was acknowledged that measures could be implemented provided the appropriate level of resources were supported by the Province of Ontario;

And whereas, the Province has recently announced that Emergency Department wait times will be a priority for the LHINs and will become part of the hospital accountability agreements;

And whereas, the funding of area hospitals is insufficient to address the addition of approximately 34,000 new residents a year in the Region of Peel;

Therefore be it resolved, that the Regional Chair communicate with the Premier of Ontario and the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care requesting their support and commitment to implement the recommendations contained within the KPMG Report to address ambulance offload delays through a system wide approach;

And further, that adjustments be made to the current funding formula for Peel area hospitals to ensure that all bed space, both current and projected, be fully funded.
