RECOMMENDATION GC-212-2008:

Whereas, in 1986 the Province of Ontario designated the month of November as "Women Abuse Prevention Month" as a time to raise awareness about violence against women and its prevention activities that attempt to eliminate all forms of women abuse and recognize that everyone has the right to live free of violence;

And whereas, in 1991 the Parliament of Canada established December 6 as the “National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women”, a day to remember the 14 young women from l’Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal and all women who have lost their lives in an act of gender-based violence;

And whereas, it is a time to recognize that the root causes of violence against women are structural and systemic and due to an imbalance of power in social, political and economic arenas, including poverty and discrimination which all result in greater vulnerability, lack of respect, limited opportunities and violence;

And whereas, the elimination of violence benefits society as a whole and requires the participation of all stakeholders and a holistic response that addresses issues such as employment, housing, childcare, education, health, safety and justice;

Therefore be it resolved, that November, 2008 be proclaimed “Women Abuse Prevention Month” and December 6, 2008 be proclaimed “National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women Day” in the Regional Municipality of Peel.

F1. Notice of Motion from Councillor Adams regarding a Youth Drop in Pilot Project in the City of Mississauga

RECOMMENDATION GC-231-2008:

Whereas, poverty and a shortage of safe, passive meeting spaces for youth are recognized as contributing factors to youth violence;

And whereas, consultants recently hired by the City reported that youth in our City desperately want safe, passive meeting spaces for after school activities;

And whereas, some City facilities, particularly community branch libraries have increasingly had to limit hours due to Budget restrictions;

And whereas, those facilities, while vacant, incur heating, lighting and in some cases rental fees for full seven day, 24 hour maintenance;

Therefore be it resolved, that the Region of Peel be requested to design, staff and fund two pilot projects in Mississauga at Sheridan Park Library and Malton Community Library to act as youth drop in centres for a series of hours in which the buildings are closed for library service – with Mississauga continuing to pay the costs of facility maintenance.
