a) Mike Metcalf, Chief and Paul Tetzlaff, Deputy Chief, Peel Regional Police, Presenting an Overview and Status Report on Provincial Adequacy Regulations

Received 2008-694

Councillor Iannicca arrived at 9:37 a.m.
Councillor Adams arrived at 9:41 a.m.

Chief Metcalf presented an overview of the Peel Regional Police Strategic Plan 2008-2010 and provided information related to crime and workload trends in 2007. The Chief highlighted that a disturbing trend is emerging with respect to charges against youth. He noted that in 2006, there were 764 charges laid against persons aged 12 to 17 and in 2007, that number increased to 1,051, but added that the youth programs in the Region of Peel have helped to avoid further increases. Chief Metcalf further noted that of the 11 homicides in the Region from January to May, 2008, seven involved edged weapons, which is an increase from the two incidences last year.

Councillor Parrish arrived at 9:48 a.m.

Domestic dispute calls also continued to increase in 2007, however, the Chief noted that this is due, in part, to increased public awareness campaigns urging the reporting of domestic violence.

Councillor Palleschi arrived at 9:49 a.m.
Councillor Fennell arrived at 9:52 a.m.

The Chief expressed appreciation to Peter Dundas, Director, Paramedic Services for his support of the Tactical Paramedic Unit whereby tactical paramedics assist the Tactical Unit on various calls for service including high risk warrant service, armed suicidal persons and barricaded persons. The Paramedic Tactical Unit consists of 11 active Region of Peel Paramedics who are available for the Tactical and Rescue Unit 24 hours per day, seven days per week.

With respect to budget pressures, the Chief indicated that a 78 per cent increase in robberies since 2003 has resulted in a substantial amount of overtime work for officers; as well as a 31 per cent increase in homicide court cases. Fuel rates have increased 26 per cent since December 2007 and continue to increase. The Chief noted that the police service logs approximately 3 million kilometres per year.

Deputy Chief Tetzlaff provided a summary of the 2007 Municipal Performance Measurement Program (MPMP). Deputy Chief Tetzlaff noted that between 2006 and 2007, overall aggregate crime rates for violent and property crimes remained relatively stable, despite an increase in population. The overall rate of youth involved in crime, both charged and cleared otherwise, has remained stable, however, the actual number of youth charged increased and the actual number of youth cleared otherwise, decreased.

Councillor Mullin inquired how police attendance at community activities is handled, noting that many organizations invite officers to speak at events. The Chief responded that his office receives approximately 1,000 invitations per year and while a lot of officers volunteer their time, the appointment of two additional Deputy Chiefs has been of great assistance. Chief Metcalf introduced Deputy Chief Jennifer Evans, Operations Support Services and Deputy Chief Dan McDonald, Field Operations.

Davis Centre; Phyllis Ferris, Residents’ Council President, Malton Village; Jim Turner, Residents’ Council President, Peel Manor and Helen Kostopoulos, Residents’ Council Vice-President, Sheridan Villa and Informing Regional Council about the Role and Function of Residents’ Councils

Carolyn Clubine, Director, Long Term Care, provided an overview of the Peel Long-Term Care Residents’ Councils. The role of the Residents’ Council is to provide feedback and recommendations to management to improve services, give residents greater participation in the affairs within their home and ensure that there is a transparent process for discussion and resolution of home-wide resident concerns. Significant achievements at the five long-term care facilities include:

Residents’ Council Presidents Charles Lynch (Davis Centre), Phyllis Ferris (Malton Village), Jim Turner (Peel Manor) and Helen Kostopoulos (Sheridan Villa) Vice-President, thanked Regional Council for the their commitment to their long-term facilities.

Councillor Groves thanked Charles Lynch for his work at the Davis Centre and recognized the dedicated staff at the Davis Centre.

Shelagh Karstoff, Chair, Peel Children’s Charter of Rights Committee and Naveed Chaudry, Executive Director, Peel Multicultural Council, provided an outline of Section Three of the Peel Children’s Charter of Rights - The Right to Religion, Culture and Beliefs. Shelagh Karstoff stated that under The Right to Religion, Culture and Beliefs, every child has the right to be treated the same way in every country and not be treated differently because of the colour of their skin and that every child has the right to choose their own faith.

Naveed Chaudry outlined the history and role of the Peel Multicultural Council (PMC). The PMC was founded in 1977 and is a charitable non-profit umbrella organization of 150 community organizations. The goal of the PMC is to promote a harmonious multicultural society and facilitate the settlement of newcomers to Canada. Naveed Chaudry stated that children’s rights when it comes to religion, culture and beliefs need to be addressed due to the changing population of Peel Region. He stated that there is a need to build an inclusive, progressive and sensitive society that fosters a sense of belonging for all residents.

Councillor Thompson thanked Shelagh Karstoff and Naveed Chaudry for their presentation and stated that adults need to continue to learn from their children the importance of mutual respect for everyone.

Whereas, the Region of Peel is in agreement with AMO and the AMRC that a new Blue Box funding model is required in order to address the fiscal imbalance between municipalities and industry and to address the disincentives for increasing the recyclability of packaging;

And whereas, under this proposed model, industry would be responsible for 100 per cent of the cost of managing all Post Consumer Packaging and Printed Paper in both the blue box program and the garbage stream;

Therefore be it resolved, that the Region of Peel is in principle, supportive of the proposed Action Plan for the revised Blue Box funding model as recommended by AMO and the AMRC in the discussion paper, provided the following issues and concerns are recognized and addressed by the Province prior to implementation:

  • A full understanding of the impact to municipalities resulting from the implementation of the proposed funding model be made explicit, and negative impacts mitigated before any changes to the model are made.
  • Questions surrounding ownership of municipal infrastructure already in place to support the Blue Box Program be addressed and considered on a case-by-case basis.
  • Existing contractual obligations for the collection and processing of residential solid waste be considered on a case-by-case basis.
  • Industry should be bound to strict recovery targets in order to ensure the environmental benefits of the program are maximized.
    Industry should effectively and accurately communicate program changes to local residents. The Province should also take responsibility for communicating program changes to residents to ensure adequate coverage and consistency across Ontario.

And further, that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) for their consideration.
