Received 2011-235

Councillor Tovey arrived at 10:45 a.m., due to other municipal business.

Bryan Hill, Manager, Integrated Planning, provided an overview of the Peel Climate Change Strategy and advised that a Climate Change Workshop with Regional Councillors and Conservation Authority Board Members is scheduled for March 31, 2011 at the Holiday Inn, Brampton. The workshop will inform participants of the draft Climate Change Strategy and obtain their input on components of the Strategy. The Strategy will be revised based on feedback received at the Workshop and the final Strategy will be presented to Regional Council for approval in the summer, 2011.

Councillor Sprovieri requested that Conservation Authority staff be invited to a future meeting of Regional Council to present information on actions taken to address climate change and advise Members how monies have been spent.

Councillor Paterak noted the importance of good precipitation to recharge wells and inquired how much of the increase in climate change is attributable to severe micro bursts and storms. Bryan Hill stated that while there is a forecast for increased annual precipitation, intense storms are also an issue, combined with periods of draught in the summer.

Councillor Mullin inquired if infrastructure in the Region of Peel is adequate with respect to storm water management and if a new formula for infrastructure is in place to ensure adequate service for new developments and infilling. The Commissioner of Public Works was requested to report to a future meeting identifying infrastructure issues and solutions as it relates to storm water management.

Councillor McCallion inquired if climate change efforts are being coordinated between the Region of Peel, area municipalities and Conservation Authorities. Bryan Hill advised that the purpose of the Climate Change Strategy is to coordinate and compliment efforts and that staff from the Region of Peel, area municipalities and Conservation Authorities have been working together with the intention of one Strategy being adopted by all Peel municipalities.

Councillor Morrison noted that other jurisdictions are handling storm water management in new, environmentally friendly ways and suggested that municipalities and Conservation Authorities will need to be flexible in their approach to addressing the issue.

Councillor Tovey suggested that a Committee of Council be established for “Living Green” to coordinate climate change efforts with other agencies.

Councillor Adams noted that she participates in Partners in Project Green which is a growing community of businesses working together to “green their bottom line” by creating an “eco-business zone” around Pearson International Airport. The Pearson Eco-Business Zone delivers programming that helps businesses reduce energy and resource costs, uncover new business opportunities and address everyday operational challenges in a green and cost effective manner. She noted that residents also benefit from improved air quality.

Councillor Whitehead spoke to the issue of re-forestation noting that most of the re-forested land in Caledon is under private ownership and through deadfall, high winds and fierce rain storms; about 20 per cent of the forest has been lost. He requested that the Climate Change Strategy include remediation plans that could be developed to re-organize forests, reduce fire hazards and encourage new tree growth. He further noted that subsidies are offered to residents who close their wells because it protects ground water and suggested that similar programs are required for the protection of forests.

Referred back to staff for additional information 2011-239

Councillor Morrison inquired if the services required could be undertaken by Regional staff and suggested that in-house facility managers should be very familiar with the 10 Peel Centre Drive, Suite A, building condition.

R. Kent Gillespie, Commissioner of Employee and Business Services, noted that the professional services include review of the actual building systems design and that the review will reveal anticipated costs and scope of work which staff are not qualified to determine. He noted that part of the planning process for future capital programs requires an understanding of what is required and the associated costs so that staff can bring forward recommendations for capital projects.

Councillor Morrison stated that Suite A building systems assessments should have taken place during the planning of Suite B and suggested that the report be referred back to staff for additional detail.

Councillor Mullin noted that the completion of these services will lead to larger projects that will likely cost in the millions of dollars. She expressed concern that Council is continuously being requested to consider funding components of larger projects, without a full understanding of the bigger picture and suggested that the requirements of Suite A need to be prioritized and essential needs identified.

Councillor Moore expressed support for the referral, noting that the report does not identify whether any savings will be realized by undertaking the work and that the report should include information related to the structural integrity, HVAC systems and fire and life safety.

Regional Chair Kolb advised that the intent is to have all Regional staff within three buildings and eliminate current leased space at Coventry Road and Airport Road. He noted that air quality and HVAC systems have been an issue at Suite A.

Councillor Saito expressed concern regarding the Suite A, fifth floor renovation proposal and requested a breakdown of the anticipated consultant charges as they relate to a review of essential building systems and the fifth floor renovation.

Councillor Saito stated that in her opinion, Commissioners should be accessible to their management team and staff and she does not agree with the creation of a fifth floor “hierarchy” where Commissioners are removed from the people they are supposed to manage. She stated that she will not support any renovations that result in all Commissioners moving to the fifth floor.

Councillor Paterak requested that staff provide Regional Council with an audit of building systems issues that have occurred since the construction of 10 Peel Centre Drive, Suite A, and include information on the prevalence of asbestos and whether it needs to be removed. He noted that a “sick” building can result in increased employee illness and those issues should be addressed.

Councillor Paterak noted that the report does not refer to accessibility upgrades that should be undertaken, noting that the Council Chamber, being the public assembly area, is located on the fifth floor and expressed concern regarding the ability to evacuate in an emergency.

In response to a question from Councillor Hames, the Commissioner of Employee and Business Services advised that staff will report back to Regional Council with the requested information within two months.

Whereas, the conversion of television signals to digital from analog has freed up dedicated spectrum available for transmission purposes known as the 700 MHz band;

And whereas, the 700 MHz band is being returned to the federal government through its regulatory body, Industry Canada, to determine use of this frequency, including the possible use of some of this spectrum by public safety for agencies broadband data communications;

HE-B1. Tuberculosis Program Innovations: The Collaborative Tuberculosis Clinic and Video Directly Observed Therapy

Received 2011-271

Councillor Mullin inquired as to the rationale for the increase in Tuberculosis (TB) cases and the role of Peel Public Health with respect to ensuring a plan is in place to address the issue.

Dr. Megan Ward, Associate Medical Officer of Health, responded that incidence of TB is higher in the Greater Toronto Area than other parts of the province because of high immigration rates from places where TB is common. People with past infection and who do not currently have active symptoms still require monitoring over a period of time. Peel Public Health has a good TB program, part of which is the immigration surveillance program where anyone with a history of TB will be identified and treated as needed. She noted that Peel has an innovative clinic with Brampton Civic Hospital where Public Health staff work with clients in the clinic who receive full services and appropriate follow up.

In response to a question from Councillor Mullin, Dr. Ward advised that new immigrants are screened and that most cases are identified prior to their arrival in Canada.

Councillor Morrison inquired if Peel has seen instances of drug resistant TB and was advised by Dr. Ward that Peel laboratories are very diligent about screening for drug resistant strains and although none have been identified to date in Peel Region, resources are available should an instance arise.
